A Netful of Holes is about female homelessness, looking at young women’s experiences of living at home, leaving home and the problems of finding somewhere to live, especially if you are single and unemployed. “…Even if you do find a place to live, it’s not necessarily what you’d call a home…” Taken from the theatre production of Netful of Holes, which was devised and performed by Second Wave Young Women’s Group, the tape intercuts discussions and workshops with actual scenes from the show. This structure gives the audience an idea of the working process leading up to the finish performance and is ideal  for further discussion purposes.
