Acting graduates bring the laughs


Recent Acting graduates Sadie Sumich, James Taheny, Jonathan Houlston and Stephanie Riley are heading to Stratford’s Attic Theatre with a production of Tom Basden’s ‘Holes’.

Directed by Head of Undergraduate Studies for Acting Daniele Sanderson, ‘Holes’ is a fast-paced, razor-sharp comedy written by the same writer as hit TV shows such as ‘Peep Show’, ‘Fresh Meat’ and ‘Plebs’.

Daniele said: “It’s a very funny play that has had us in stitches during rehearsals. It’s such a treat to have the opportunity to work with recent graduates on a professional production.”

‘Holes’ is set on a desert island in the aftermath of a plane crash. Three of the four survivors are colleagues on their way to a conference, and most of the humour arises from them attempting to face their situation with the same strategies they employed in their jobs. The play is a comedy of awkwardness, self-importance, and passive-aggression, with occasional flashes of courage or sympathy.

‘Holes’ runs until Sunday 30 July. Find out more and book your tickets here.
