Crowning the circular Playhouse theatre, this 55 metre blue and white neon word game is one of Canberra’s highest profile public artworks. A series of words precede the word ‘house’. For example: 'huff house puff house blow your house down house'.

Funded by the ACT Government for the opening of the new Playhouse.
