Home Theatre

“Lapwood establishes himself as one of our best storytellers.”

Nicholas Reid

Welcome to the Repertory Apartments — where scenes of tenderness and trouble, music and magic, the uncanny and the macabre play out on intimate stages.

Moving between the early 20th century and the modern day, this genre-bending collection, spanning the fantastical and the keenly real, introduces an ensemble of remarkable characters — and the fateful building that connects them all.
