By Robert Holman

Ebook £4.99£3.99

From the lawns of King's College, Cambridge, where two shy young men from opposing backgrounds confront the reality of their attraction to each other, to the battlefields of the Spanish Civil War, where courage, idealism and solidarity are tested in the furnace of conflict, Robert Holman's play Today is a panoramic study of life, desire and the search for a fundamental self in the midst of a shifting, uncertain world.

Written for an ensemble of Royal Shakespeare Company actors, Today was first performed at The Other Place, Stratford-upon-Avon, in October 1984.

Also included is the music used in the original production.

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

‘I came here for the future. If you can’t see a future, what can yer see? Nothing.’
