1 Male 3 Female

Sisters Dolly and Esther grow up in ultra-conservative Harrogate in the 1960s

Fifty years later, following the death of their mother, Dolly comes to stay with Esther – now a successful novelist and living in Little Venice with her younger, inscrutable lodger, Jude

The three go to Norway to meet the rock-star grandfather Jude has only ever heard about

Instead, he meets Anila who changes his world

To make a new future, these four people will have to be honest, heal old wounds – and two sisters learn to laugh together again

The Lodger by Robert Holman is an enlightening, cathartic and acerbic play about identity, maturity and reconciliation

It premiered at The Coronet Theatre, London, in September 2021
