From writer Tom Basden, Holes is a pithy and grizzly apocalyptic comedy crash landing this summer. Stranded on a desert island following a plane crash, three sparring colleagues and a teenager are the sole survivors of the BA043 air disaster. Waiting to be rescued and armed with microwave chicken chasseurs and duty-free booze, our mismatched castaways wrestle with the realisation that they might just be the all that’s left of humanity…

Award-winning writer and actor, Tom Basden’s writing credits include TV comedies Plebs, Fresh Meat and The Wrong Mans.

This play is showing as a double bill with Out of Love. Find out more about the BOVTS Summer Festival at the Wardrobe Theatre here.
