On a House Like A Fire

On A House Like A Fire is a powerful story told through fragments and glimpses – an immersive experience about the nature of memory and the way we remember.  Sometimes in a gesture, or in a turn of phrase, sometimes in the scent of hairspray, or glimpsed in an old photograph, a person reappears. In this evocative and lyrical memoir piece, words and music ebb and flow to build up and undermine the past like a beach over time and tide.

In this nostalgic, funny and moving show writer-performer Michelle Read collaborates with composer Brian Keegan, to remember her mother, Margaret in words, images and music. ‘On A House Like A Fire’ is an immersive theatrical experience about the comfort of good memories and the things that can provide them.
