Lost

By Robert Holman

The second play in Robert Holman's acclaimed trilogy of short plays, Making Noise Quietly.

Making Noise Quietly was first performed at the Bush Theatre, London, in June 1986.

Press Quotes

'Holman's instinct for truth, and an unaffected ability to spot what's poignant in it, is what one remembers: that, and a paradoxical impression of spare richness, astringent abundance...'
