A darkly comedic tale that literally unearths the darker side of property ownership and moves past 'cautionary tale' as it snakes through the brutal battleground world of real estate, decorative twig orbs and the state of the human soul.

Imagine moving into the cutest little house in the hippest little neighbourhood only to discover a string of hidden defects that drain your life savings and threaten to ruin your life. Award-winning writer and performer Karen Hines explores the darker side of property ownership.

Crawlspace is inspired by Hines’ true story of buying a fully detached 'condo alternative' in a hip downtown neighbourhood in a heated market that turned horribly, nightmarishly wrong. The story became a National Magazine Award-nominated feature called My Little House of Horrors (Swerve Magazine). It was then adapted as a stage play, and was first performed for boutique audiences in tiny kitchens and designer homes. Currently being adapted into a feature film.
