  • Best New Play, The Offies - 2016

In the haze of a late summer in a London garden, the apples have all fallen to the ground. It is the day of Daddy’s funeral, and two orphans find themselves suddenly alone, with nobody to cling to but each other.

Robert Holman's play A Breakfast of Eels was premiered at the Print Room at the Coronet, London, in March 2015. It won Best New Play at The Offies (the annual awards for Off-West End theatre) in 2016.
