Seaton has produced a thought provoking and expansive piece of theatre

Somalia Seaton continues the great British legacy of social realism in House, a focused but never narrow look at the intersection of culture and family…It’s raw, smart drama and every bit of this is felt
BROADWAY BABY

Which is worse, asks Seaton: the overt racism of St George’s flag-waving Little Englanders who pine nostalgically for a mythical England of steak and kidney pies and friendly milkmen? Or the disguised racism of a middle-class white liberal who says all the right things but who allows their own privilege to go unchecked by refusing to recognise that it was built on the back of colonialism?… this is a fierce, pulsating and galvanising play that makes you sit up and take notice both of its writer and its message

Seaton’s script is strong with bouts of poetry and humour, at the heart of her play is a universal issue
