“Lost meets Lord of the Flies... quick, sarcastic and agreeably grisly” —The Times
“Fast-paced and relentlessly funny” —A Younger Theatre
An absurd, hilarious and fast-paced comedy by the writer of some of Britain’s most acclaimed TV comedies.
Flight BA043 has crashed on an island. Stranded, four survivors wait. Surely somebody will find them. Planes don’t just disappear, do they? And, if no one’s coming... what do they do now?
Tom Basden’s razor-sharp comedy Holes opened at the Arcola Tent, London, in July 2014, following a run at the 2013 Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
