A magical poem written and directed by Chris Fogg and performed by a company of three actors and a cellist.
Tree House is a story of love and dreams, promises and betrayals, hope and redemption, shot through with warmth, humour and compassion.
It relates the fortunes of three people – Robbie, Jane and Alan – whom we first encounter as children playing in a tree house on a piece of waste ground on the edge of a village. We then follow each of them as they navigate their way along the different rungs of the social and property ladder: Jane goes into law, politics and the media; Alan pursues a career in property, finance and the City; while Robbie joins the Army, carries out a number of tours of duty in Afghanistan, defusing roadside bombs, where a spontaneous act of kindness leads to a sudden and unexpected tragedy.
Some years later fate conspires to bring all three back to the waste ground, back to the tree house, where old scores are settled in a final act of reckoning. A story for our times which ‘looks at life’s moving parts…’ A play for today.
