The Children’s Theatre Partnership (CTP) and Royal & Derngate, Northampton are bringing the UK Tour of the Nottingham Playhouse production of Holes to Theatre Royal Plymouth from Tuesday 17 – Saturday 21 March. The inventive new stage show based on multi-award-winning novel and blockbuster film, Holes tells the adventure story of Stanley Yates, who is born into a family cursed with bad luck and finds himself accused of a crime he didn’t commit.

‘Sent to a labour camp as punishment, Stanley is tasked with digging one hole, five-foot wide by five-foot deep, every day. He is 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?’

To see whether Stanley and his friends uncover their adventures secrets, tickets can be booked online to see Holes at  or by calling the Theatre Royal Plymouth Box Office on 01752 267222.

The Children’s Theatre Partnership (CTP) and Royal & Derngate, Northampton present the UK Tour of Nottingham Playhouse production of Holes, written by Louis Sachar and directed by Adam Penford, Artistic Director at Nottingham Playhouse.
