Enchanting summer theatre celebrating a remarkable forgotten female artist

Following on from their acclaimed Windrush production, ExploreTheArch, Sussex’s experiential and most unconventional theatre company, are back with a hauntingly beautiful inter-European migration story. The House of Marcelle is inspired by the love letters of an extraordinary Belgian painter, Marcelle van Caillie. Marcelle settled in London in 1955, one of many restless Europeans shifting around the continent after the trauma of WW2. The show opens on Monday 29 July and runs into August. HOT’s Erica Smith enters the turbulent world of a remarkable woman.
