Hole 2


Hereʼs the key. Go on. Open. 

I took the key and tried it in the keyhole that had appeared in my stomach only a few minutes before. The key fit perfectly. I took a breath. 

Everything began to change then. 

Meet Hole. She’s been told by a woman in a strip lighted, white-walled, disinfectant-smelling room that she has Binge Eating Disorder. It’s not a particularly sexy name, but it is what it says on the tin. Her mother, her teacher, they each try to help but only make things worse. She’s hollow, she’s hungry all the time and she doesn’t know why. And then from nowhere The Child appears. She doesn’t understand, but she knows she needs to follow The Child and go… down.

And it’s dark in there - Alice In Wonderland and Pan’s Labyrinth collide with Lynchian dreams and nightmares as Hole goes deeper. She doesn’t think there’s anything, or anyone, down there - but she’s wrong. She’s certainly not in Kansas anymore.

Written by Hannah Morrish (who recently appeared as Portia in the RSC’s 2023/24 The Merchant of Venice 1936), Hole is a funny, moving and often frightening exploration of the mental health battles and inner demons we all face while under the constant scrutiny of an expectant world. Performed solely by Matsume Kai (2022 London revival of Max Dickins’ Kin), who multi-roles all characters, this production is directed by queer artistic partnership David Fairs & Conor O’Kane (Little Shop of Horrors Derry Playhouse 2023 sell-out run; The Human Voice in collaboration with the Comité Jean Cocteau at the White Bear Theatre 2024; co-founders of critically acclaimed theatre company GOLEM!).
