Into my heart an air that kills
From yon far country blows:
What are those blue remembered hills,
What spires, what farms are those?
The story of seven children one wartime summer, whose hilarious games, complex friendships and moral dilemmas lead them headlong into sudden and unexpected tragedy.
Dennis Potter’s charming and profound play captures his expansive humanity, his wicked humour and his fierce intolerance of ordinary cruelty.
Almost twenty years after his early death, Dennis Potter speaks to our fractious, changing world with a simple but powerful rhetoric about personal responsibility. He takes us to a world of dappled sunshine and long, playful afternoons to remind us that no-one is ever truly innocent.
Moving, funny and unforgettable.
