Mister Holgado is Christopher William Hill’s dark and hilarious play, which premieres at The Unicorn Theatre (http://unicorntheatre.com/mister-holgado) from 24th March to 28th April. When little Conrad Van der Bosch claims he has an invisible tiger called Sigmund hiding in his wardrobe, his child psychologist father calls upon the fictional character of the terrifying Mister Holgado to curb this defiant behaviour. His plan backfires spectacularly.
Mister Holgado is set in the same fictional city of Schwartzgarten as Christopher William Hill’s series for Orchard Books (Osbert The Avenger comes out in paperback this May). In keeping with the Tales from Schwartzgarten, Mister Holgado is dark, sharp and just a bit terrifying. It’s being published by Oberon Books (http://oberonbooks.com/modern-plays/mister-holgado) this month.
