By Dennis Potter
Directed by David Glass (1999)
1943 in the Forest of Dean and a gang of seven year olds, played by adult actors, act out their fears, hostilities and rivalries.
Innocent nostalgia is shattered in a playfully anarchic staging of Potter’s classic tale. Performed by a multiracial ensemble in a highly physical European style on a set of old, discarded mattresses.

"Potter would have cheered Yellow Earth's brilliant reappropriation ... one of the classiest ensembles"
"The excellent Yellow Earth... a quality cast"
