Hold Still at the Fugard

The Fugard Theatre presents the production of Hold Still, commisioned as part of its New Writing Initiative.

London, July, a summer’s evening in the near future: it’s the apex of a heat wave and Oliver and Imran have shut themselves in Oliver’s bedroom.

Imran stations himself at the window, plucking at the shut curtains, edgy, on high alert.

The audience learns that this is no ordinary night or friendship; Imran is not British but a refugee whose asylum is about to run out.

When Oliver’s parents, Rosa and Jim, arrive home and realise that their son is breaking the law, a bitter argument erupts between the four of them about citizenship, love, family, history and what we owe each other. As the long night unfolds, Rosa and Jim grapple with what this reveals about their own marriage and about what to do: give this child up to the authorities, knowing that his return home could mean his death, or break the law, at risk to themselves, and help him hide?

Time: Tue to Fri 8pm | Sat 3pm & 8pm
