Hollow was commissioned as part of the egg's Incubator programme under a Leverhulme Scholarship. It culminated in a showcase at the egg at Theatre Royal Bath in September 2017.


A boy discovers an injured owl. A man discovers the boy and the owl. A dark, challenging play about outsiders, communication, relationships and nature. It's not what you expect.

A first draft of this play has been finished now and is in development for a full production in 2019.
