Robert Holman is the quiet man among modern British dramatists. But his new play...is an outstanding work that sings with truth (Michael Billington, Guardian)

Rafts and Dreams: While digging up the roots of a tree in the garden, Neil, Leo and Hetty uncover a vast underground lake which floods away the world. With Leo at the tiller of his sawn-away living room, the trio begin a voyage of the earths watery surface. It is a surrealist fantasy at its most thought-provoking, a play whose best bits manage to work like a dream (Paul Taylor, Independent).

Outside the Whale is a fictional account of the writer George Orwell set in the early 30s in which the action moves easily over a period of three years and settings as various as the basement warehouse of the publishers Victor Gollancz, a hen-hut in Essex and the dosshouse in Romford.
