"Darkly riveting...musically thrilling." The Stage

A dark and thrilling musical ghost story.

From the Tony Award-winning composer of Spring Awakening and American Psycho.

An eerie lighthouse stands on the remote East Coast of America at the height of World War II. When Christopher’s father’s plane is shot down, he is sent to live with his Aunt Lily and her mysterious Japanese housekeeper. It isn’t long before he starts to hear strange music seeping through the walls… but is his imagination getting the better of him, or are the ghosts warning of real danger?

Soon the whispers become something louder.

Starring Simon Bailey, Nicholas Goh, Simon Lipkin, Niamh Perry, Dianne Pilkington and a seven piece on-stage band, Whisper House combines a thrillingly original rock score with an unforgettable story about learning to embrace the unknown.

Music and lyrics by Duncan Sheik (Spring Awakening, American Psycho), book and lyrics by Obie award-winning Kyle Jarrow (A Very Merry Unauthorized Children’s Scientology Pageant) and conceived with Keith Powell.

Suitable for ages 8+
