Play of the week: Holes, Assembly George Square, Edinburgh
A secret seaside location is the setting for Tom Basden's play, which begins in the aftermath of a plane crash on a tropical island.
There are four survivors – three business colleagues heading to a conference and one teenage girl – and the comedy and drama stem from the collision of 21st-century office life with island survival.
Basden's script speeds along, crammed with delicious details about corporate bonding and Coldplay, and Daniel Rigby steals the show as the Brent-esque Ian, ably supported by Katy Wix, Mathew Baynton and Bebe Cave.
With director Phillip Breen cooking up a fervid atmosphere, it's a play with the makings of a future tragicomic hit.
