The Velvet Onion is proud to be able to offer one lucky winner a pair of tickets to see Tom Basden’s razor-sharp comedy play Holes at The Arcola Theatre this summer.
Starring Mathew Baynton (Horrible Histories, Yonderland, Gavin and Stacey), Elizabeth Berrington (Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa, Psychoville, Doctor Who), and Daniel Rigby (Eric and Ernie, Black Mirror, Cardinal Burns), Holes is written by Tom Basden, who may be familiar to TVO veterans from his acting appearances in Star Stories, Hyperdrive and most recently, W1A.
Basden is also an award winning writer, with a Royal Television Society award under his belt, alongside three BAFTA nominations (including one for The Wrong Mans), a Fringe First Award and an Edinburgh Comedy Award. Holes tells the story of four survivors of a plane crash, who don’t know where they are… or if anyone is coming to help them.
It’s an absurd, hilarious and fast-paced comedy, which saw rave reviews when it made its Edinburgh Fringe debut last year. Now it reaches the Arcola Tent for a strictly limited run between 16th July and 9th August, directed by Phillip Breen (The Merry Wives of Windsor), who last worked with Basden on Party – a play which later became a much loved radio series featuring Anna Crilly and Katy Wix.
