On a cold, clear, moonless night in the middle of winter, all is not quite what it seems in the remote, mythical town of Almost, Maine. As the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above, Almost’s residents find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways. In this whimsical approach to the joys and perils of romance, knees are bruised, hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend – almost – in this delightful midwinter night’s dream.

House. debuted in 2016 at Howard Community College. It is written by Daniel Johnston, a member of the Howard County Arts Collective and was performed by that group.House. is based on the reality shows that appear all over television today. House. is a very funny satire with sharp and witty dialogue, clear and recognizable characters and enough mystery to keep the audience on edge. The plot is an imaginary reality show., most like Survivor or Big Brother.

Here is what the critics said: “Penned and directed by Daniel Johnston, House. tells the story of ten very different contestants participating in a “Big Brother”-style reality show for a one million dollar prize. House. is skillfully scripted and helmed, successfully breathing life into what could have been stock reality show archetypes.” -Kay-Megan Washington, March 12, 2016-DC Metro Theater Arts
