Ellie Kendrick’s debut play, Hole, asks how power is created, using word, music and movement in equal parts.

“We’re harpies.
We’re a three headed b*tch.
We’ve been guarding the gates.
Now we’re throwing them open.”

From a hole in the ground, three women force their way out. They sing. They move. They take up space, and they refuse to apologise. Hole explores their “take over”.

“You came here to look.
We’re giving you something to watch.”

Hole is part of the Royal Court’s Jerwood New Playwrights programme, supported by Jerwood Charitable Foundation. The cast includes Ronke Adekoluejo, Ebony Bones, Alison Halstead, Rubyyy Jones, Cassie Layton and Eva Magyar.

The show is directed by Helen Goalen and Abbi Greenland (from the award-winning company RASHDASH).
