It’s the future. But only slightly. There are blackouts. No one knows what’s causing them, but that doesn’t stop people going missing in them. Now Steph and Bell, a schoolgirl and barmaid, have to search for their missing friend, until the outside world starts infecting the theatre that stands around them…

​Originally supported and developed by Leeds Playhouse before transferring to New Diorama in London, Holy What’s A Girl in School Uniform (Walks into a Bar) is a bold new play about crisis, darkness, cities and hope.

“A resounding shot in the dark.”
★★★★ The Guardian

“Intelligent ultra-live production of a chilling, funny, contemporary new play.”
★★★★ The Stage

​”This is quite brilliant, leaning on the likes of Caryl Churchill, Martin Crimp and other masters of elliptical language.”
★★★★ Time Out

Holy What is a new theatre company founded by writer Lulu Raczka, director Ali Pidsley and producer Imogen Clare-Wood. Formed after their critically lauded production of ‘A Girl in School Uniform (Walks into a Bar)’, Holy What have come together to continue creating irreverent character-based new writing pieces that interrogate theatrical form. Ali and Lulu have previously worked together on the critically lauded ‘NOTHING’ and ‘Some People Talk About Violence’ for Barrel Organ Theatre.
