Blue Remembered Hills

September, 1999
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.
