On Hold

“A terrifying insight into a broken housing system…will have you laughing and crying all at the same time. Fantastic!” Audience Member at Hounslow Arts Centre, Hounslow.

Inspired by the real-life experiences of families living in temporary accommodation, ‘On Hold’ lifts the lid on what it really means not to have a home to call your own. From the little things that you’d neve believe, to the dark humour that keeps you going, it reveals the human truth behind the statistics.

On Hold will be touring throughout 2019 at Watermans Arts Centre, Feltham Arts, Hounslow Arts Centre and at The Curve Slough. More venues to be added and tickets will be sold once dates are confirmed.

A dark comedy, with political undertones, that takes a look at a world where square pegs must be forced to fit into round holes… and the chaos that ensues when one person begins to look at square pegs differently.“Impressively executed… The aspects of working life which the play depicts as ridiculous– the enforcement of dehumanising rules, the crushing of independent thought, the inability to admit that both the role one performs and the company itself are largely pointless –are frighteningly familiar.
“Why can’t we build a new machine… so everyone can fit?” It shouldn’t be a radical idea; but until we, as a society, decide to build our new machine, works like Square will continue to be needed.”
(Review, The Loop, Sarah Linney)
