Acclaimed playwright Nadia David’s latest play, Hold Still, premieres at The Baxter for a short season. A family shaped by deep generational trauma must confront their own histories to get through a life-changing night. Rosa and Ben Feigel are a progressive, dynamic, inter-racial North London couple. She’s the daughter of South African exiles, he’s the son of a man who escaped on Kindertransport. Their teenage son Oliver - full of a political conviction his parents have encouraged - decides to hide a vulnerable person in their home. When Ben and Rosa find out a bitter argument erupts between them about the morality of the law, the limits of empathy and what we owe each other and strangers.
