Put your sofa in the front row with a new digital production of The House That Jackson Built, live-recorded at Half Moon Theatre and professionally filmed and edited. Join us for an online performance that puts the best seats in the house into your own home.

Jackson’s dad is building a new house out of weird and whacky bits and bobs that people have thrown away. The last few years have been hard for young Jackson, living without his mum. Now his dad wants to make a new start, but Jackson isn’t ready to move on. Not until he blows the dust off mum’s favourite old book and conjures up the Story Fairy.

Celebrating books and the joy of reading, The House That Jackson Built features a larger than life pop-up book and thrilling adventures, including a giant who cannot say “fee-fi-fo-fum”, an elephant professor and the Wordy Wordy Birdie.

This magical spoken word theatre show delights in family, recycling and the power of imagination.
