A holiday. A time for conversation and distraction, a time to wind down and to dream...

In a moment of relaxation and quiet reflection, two men unwittingly engage. Spontaneous, unaffected and thrillingly real, innocent discussion becomes an exploration of private fantasy, hidden anxiety, personal mythology and the most inexplicable behaviour.

What lies behind the most unconscious gesture? How do power struggles play out in the politest of exchanges? Is there hope in the blank spaces between strangers?

An extraordinary blend of performance, humour, sound, video installation and baroque song, Holiday is theatre at its most inspirational.

"Holiday is great theatre - funny and light as air on the surface, with philosophical depths that will niggle you long after you leave." - The Age
