"Definitely a production not to be missed" THE BRITISH THEATRE GUIDE

Blue Remembered Hills

Willie is playing at being a Spitfire, Peter is avoiding the Williams gang, and Raymond is playing at being a cowboy with John. Angela doesn’t really want to share her china doll with Audrey. And Donald is hiding out in the barn. Amidst hilarious games and complex friendships an unexpected turn of events lead these seven children headlong into sudden tragedy one wartime summer.

Dennis Potter’s charming and profound play takes us to a world of dappled sunshine and long, playful afternoons to remind us that no-one is ever truly innocent. Almost twenty years after his early death, Potter speaks to our fractious, changing world with a simple but powerful story about personal responsibility. The play captures his wicked humour and his fierce intolerance of cruelty.

Moving, funny and unforgettable.
