Blue Remembered Hills
By Dennis Potter
Into my heart an air that kills
From yon far country blows:
What are those blue remembered hills,
What spires, what farms are those?
Following Close the Coalhouse Door, Northern Stage returns with Dennis Potter’s seminal play Blue Remembered Hills.
Seven children play in a world of dappled sunshine one wartime summer until their merriment turns sour. Hilarious games, complex friendships and moral dilemmas lead them headlong into sudden and unexpected tragedy.
Almost 20 years after his death, Dennis Potter’s charming and profound play captures humanity, wicked humour and his fierce intolerance of ordinary cruelty.
the seven strong cast is superb. ***** What's On Stage
