Grandad's House

Puppets and Objects

They say that the departed live on thanks to the memories of those who loved them…

Grandpa’s house is a work of small format created for all audiences from five years. It can be represented in any space provided you have total darkness. It is created to be public and actress in the same space if possible.


Granddad lives an ordinary life: he bathes at the same time, goes for a walk at the same time and eats his breakfast at the same time each and every day.

One day his legs decide to stop walking and, little by little, he dims.

When granddad finally departs, his loved ones build a house very close to him so that he won’t feel lonely. And so the story goes: placidly opening and closing drawers, tenderly remembering special moments of his life through the magic of an old desk.

They say that the departed live on thanks to the memories of those who loved them…
