The Old Vic Community Company presents



“Like a billion Dick Whittingtons”

From estate agents to squatters, from support workers to oligarchs, we are all united in a race to get a place. But who can afford to go the distance? Luckily Sam’s got a chance to make a change, to make things better somehow. Sams going to tell us the answer. He just doesnt know what it is yet.

David Watsons epic tale, based on the testimonies of over 200 Londoners, is a response to the mounting housing crisis and asks what it means to find some space in a city thats squeezing you out.

Housed played to packed houses at The Old Vic and Hotel Elephant in July 2014. Thank you to all those who took part and came to see the show.
