It is with great sadness that we learnt of the death of David Holman, one of the great champions of Theatre for Young People and a brilliant playwright. His intelligent, compassionate and brave plays shaped the UK scene from the 1970’s onwards. He then moved to Australia for some years, and is a much-loved dramatist there also. 

We are so proud that David became a celebrated International artist, respected by so many, and whose plays continue to be performed around the world. We have lost a giant.
