The Children’s Theatre Partnership and Royal & Derngate Northampton present the Nottingham Playhouse production of Holes by Louis Sachar.
Stanley Yelnats can’t catch a break. Born into a family cursed with bad luck, it comes as no surprise when he finds himself accused of a crime he didn’t commit.
Sent to a labour camp as punishment, he is tasked with digging one hole, five-foot-wide by five-foot-deep, every day. He’s told it is to build ‘character’. But the tyrannical Warden is definitely hiding something. How will Stanley and his fellow inmates deal with her demands, her two cronies, plus the fearsome rattlesnakes and yellow-spotted lizards? And will Stanley and his new friends unearth what’s really going on?
Holes is the brilliant, inventive and creative new stage show based on the multi-award-winning novel and the Hollywood blockbuster.
This hit production is a thrilling and off-beat comedy adventure and is perfect for adults and children aged 8 and up.
