German Skerries


“Holman’s writing is delicate and subtle, and even the emotional highs of the play barely ripple the surface of the dialogue”

The Arts Desk

Written by Robert Holman

Directed by Alice Hamilton

Produced with Orange Tree Theatre, UpInArms

A friendship, a marriage, a holiday, a death – German Skerries fills the stage with the meetings and departures that make us human.

It’s 1977, and Martin, Jack, Michael and Carol are staring out into the future. Around a popular birdwatching spot overlooking the mouth of the Tees, their lives intertwine to create an uplifting portrait of human hope and vulnerability.

The first major revival of this richly resonant drama which won renowned playwright Robert Holman the George Devine Award. His incredible career spans four decades including the plays Making Noise Quietly, Across Oka and the recent A Breakfast of Eels.
