'My parents are here. In the walls and the floorboards and the bricks of this house. This is not only your street with only your stories.'
The present day. A residential street in South East London. The house where reclusive siblings Peppy and Daniel were born is now stuffed full of everything they have ever owned. This hoard, their eccentric appearance and rampant garden hedge, set them conspicuously apart from others on their road.
When young Ben visits from next door he is simply looking for friendship; but what happens next challenges everyone’s idea of neighbourliness.
The House They Grew Up In is a tender, dark and funny look at a co-dependent relationship between a brother and a sister, and how they cope when the world bursts in on them. It explores how, in an age of anxiety, we live alongside those different to us.
