Flatpack

A pair of hapless newly-weds are given a flat pack first home as a wedding gift, the instructions get muddled and they proceed to attempt to build it with hilarious results in Oh! Production’s new show for ages three and up. Can they raise the roof or will they bring the house down?

Inspired by Buster Keaton, the family show is told in silent movie style with live music. It’s on at Ipswich’s New Wolsey Studio tomorrow at 11am and 2pm.
