JOHN ELKINGTON co-stars with Kacey Ainsworth  (Little Mo in EastEndersGrantchester) in HOLES at the Nottingham Playhouse, opening on Saturday 31st March.

Holes is a new theatrical version of the multi-award-winning novel by Louis Sachar that went on to be a big screen smash-hit.

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?

Expect live music, scary puppets and breath-taking scenery in this off-beat and quirky adventure romp.
