Zhailon Levingston’s THE HOLE

The Hole explores the relationship and personal struggles of two inmates in solitary confinement as experienced through their illusions, memories, dreams, nightmares, and delusions. A loose riff on Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, this play explores what happens when the walls of prison rub up against the walls of identity and how forbidden love can be a violent thing. The Hole is a quest to examine some of the messy and controversial themes of the play through the perspective of black folk in America.
