Blue Remembered Hills (2010)


BLUE REMEMBERED HILL SHOW IMAGE copy

A group of seven year olds play in the Forest of Dean one summer afternoon during 1943. This play, however, is far from frivolous. It displays how victimisation and stereotypical views occur even in young children, and ends tragically for one character as a result of the other children’s actions.

Reflecting on the human capability for brutality, especially in children, the most striking feature of this play is that though the characters are children they are all played by adult actors.
