holes Merchant of Venice mock


Written by Louis Sachar

Directed by Christine Tanner


Ever been in the wrong place at the wrong time? Well, young Stanley Yelnats has and the repercussions stink! Stanley finds himself stuck in a detention camp digging holes in the hot desert sun, learning to survive physically and emotionally. Sensing something more than meets the eye is happening, Stanley works to dig up the truth as he digs holes for the warden. This literary favorite weaves the present and past together with colorful characters, including Zero, Mr. Sir and Kissin' Kate Barlow. Louis Sachar's stage adaptation of his Newbery Medal winning book is an innovative, humorous, and lively tale of consequence and redemption.
