Paperback : 9781854597472, 96 pages, July 2003


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.
