CallBack theatre is proud to present the premiere of John Sheehy’s New play The Hole

(written as part of his Arts Council Theatre Artist in Residency Award)

Performed by Bren Barnett

Directed by John Sheehy

Produced by Cora Fenton

Ever dug yourself into a hole and couldn’t come out? Ever dug yourself into a hole and didn’t want to come out?

The Hole tells the story of one man’s self imposed exile from society. 
All he wants is to exercise his right to be left alone.

Is that too much to ask?
Apparently it is!

A new play that offers proof of life after death and practical advice on how to dig a really big hole! When you are 50 ft down and grappling with the mysteries of the universe, sometimes the answer is to just to keep on digging.
