'Hold for Three', a new play heading for Edinburgh

Hold for Three, a play written by, directed by, and starring some of QM's finest, is heading to Edinburgh this Summer. 

1 May 2014

In advance of Edinburgh, it's on at the Oxford House Theatre on the 30th May. Tickets for the 30th are £5; to book please contact Follow @holdforthree for updates.


The comedy is based around three characters stuck in a lift, all slowly revealing their quirky and flamboyant characteristics, which made the show a joy to create, let alone watch as a member of the audience. Although set in a claustrophobic setting, the show is far from being static. With salsa dancing, a bottle of vodka and an elusive member of the cast, the dialogue is witty and will have audience members rolling in the aisles, thanks to a fantastic cast. 


"Flawless in both acting and writing alike #HOLDFOR3"

"Hilarious from start to finish with an amazingly funny and witty script, brilliantly delivered by a superb cast #HOLDFOR3"

"#HOLDFOR3 is literally the funniest play I have seen for ages! Such a clever script and top-notch actors."

"#holdfor3 made me do a v. unattractive snort/laugh/honk more than once - unapologetically silly, a whole lot of fun and perfectly presented."
