A gripping play about the nature of violence.
15-year-old Kerry and her mum have moved to a council estate. Kerry hates it. She hates her mum’s new man too. But when she meets a boy in the playground and asks him to do something about it, she finds herself adrift in a landscape of physical brutality, drugs – and, eventually, love.
Robert Holman’s play Holes in the Skin was first performed at the Chichester Festival Theatre in June 2003.
‘Marvellously mature and dramatically engrossing’
