The Greenhouse

The Greenhouse is a metaphoric extension of The Playhouse, where an invited artist/group of artists hold residency for as little or as long as possible to create a new script. In The Greenhouse, we encourage experimentation, scene readings, workshops of movement ideas, and open work sessions so that kids may be exposed to the process of brainstorming for the stage. The Greenhouse culminates into a public reading of a full script.

For our 2018 Summer of Legacy, The Greenhouse presents:

A stage adaptation of the book GOBLIN SECRETS by William Alexander.

"Rownie, the youngest in Graba the witchworker's household of stray children, escapes and goes looking for his missing brother. Along the way he falls in with a troupe of theatrical goblins and learns the secret origins of masks. Now Graba's birds are hunting him in the Southside of Zombay, the Lord Mayor's guards are searching for him in Northside, and the River between them is getting angry. The city needs saving --- and only the goblins know how."
