Goldfish keep growing as long as they have room to grow into.

This is not true of people, or millionaires with mansions would be ten feet tall.

What IS true is that the houses we grow up in leave marks on us, for better or worse.

This is a play about the first eighteen years of your life and all of the things you may or may not learn in that time. How to cook, how to share a room without going insane, how to be happy. It’s about how after those eighteen years you’re expected to know certain things, even though there isn’t a class. It’s about how that’s scary, even if you’re prepared. It’s about how lots of people aren’t, not even remotely.

this is a room… is performed by young people who will never own houses.

Suitable for ages 14+
