Set at the height of the Second World War, Whisper House takes place inside an eerie lighthouse on the remote and isolated East Coast of America. When Christopher’s father’s plane is shot down, he finds a place to stay at the spooky lighthouse, encountering an Aunt he has never met and a rather mysterious Japanese housekeeper.
When he begins to hear strange whisperings through the walls, he must decide if it’s a friendly sound or something far more sinister… A tale about embracing the unknown and facing your fears, Whisper House combines mesmerising magical illusions with thumping, heart-stopping music that creates a haunting story to touch the soul.
Featuring music and lyrics by Duncan Sheik, who is best known for Broadway successes Spring Awakening and American Psycho, Whisper House features a book and additional lyrics by Obie Award-winning Kyle Jarrow.
Whisper House features an exciting cast, including Simon Bailey, Nicholas Goh, Simon Lipkin, Niamh Perry and Dianne Pilkington.
Following the run of The Wild Party, Whisper House is the second production to open at The Other Palace, which was taken over by Andrew Lloyd Webber to present new and rarely seen musicals. Whisper House opened on April 6th and ran until May 27th 2017, having had an official opening on April 18th 2017.
