House of Life

One-part sermon, one-part purge, three-parts party

This show is part of Queer Futures. Explore the season & find out more here!

One-part sermon, one-part purge, three-parts party, House of Life is a travelling musical cult collective hosted by the glitter-clad RaveRend. Made up of alumni of the BAFTA-winning Television Workshop, Nottingham's Sheep Soup uses live music with loop pedals, sampled voices and audience interaction to create a feel-good, open-hearted and celebratory cabaret theatre show.

Embark on an exhilarating eight-step program designed to help you find true contentment hosted by the RaveRend, where the music moves your body and the energy creates an unforgettable sense of community. 

While playfully mocking wellness culture, House of Life also touches the heart and embraces vulnerability. We aim is to bridge the gap between disconnected souls and build a profound sense of unity. In a time when isolation prevails, we invite you to connect, let go, and rise above.

If you're going through something, House of Life is your sanctuary to release and embrace it all. Join us for an unforgettable night of purging and catharsis. Together, we'll find solace and upliftment in the magic of this space.
