Other Worlds

By Robert Holman

EPUB £4.99£3.99

A gorilla is taken for a French spy by an eighteenth-century fishing community on the isolated North Yorkshire coast.

Robert Holman's play explores the suspicions, antipathies and fears of the unknown that divide communities, and the bonds that can transcend those divisions.

In the end 'we're equal when we die, except f'the coffin'.

Other Worlds was first performed at the Royal Court Theatre, London, in May 1983, directed by Richard Wilson.

Other Worlds is also available in the volume Robert Holman Plays: One.

‘If the French do come, it’ll be on a night like this.’
