Rafts and Dreams and Outside Whale by Robert Holman
Book Description"Robert Holman is the quiet man among modern British dramatists. But his new play...is an outstanding work that sings with truth" (Michael Billington, Guardian) Rafts and Dreams: "While digging up the roots of a tree in the garden, Neil, Leo and Hetty uncover a vast underground lake which floods away the world. With Leo at the tiller of his sawn-away living room, the trio begin a voyage of the earth's watery surface. It is a surrealist fantasy at its most thought-provoking, a play whose best bits manage to work like a dream" (Paul Taylor, Independent). Outside the Whale is a fictional account of the writer George Orwell set in the early 30s in which the action moves easily over a period of three years and settings as various as the basement warehouse of the publishers Victor Gollancz, a hen-hut in Essex and the dosshouse in Romford.
