Audition for Blue Remembered Hills and discover your inner child.
Blue Remembered Hills, a play by Dennis Potter from 1979, is a deceptively simple tale that relates the activities of seven English children, played by adults, on a summer afternoon during World War II. In the woods, a field, and a barn, they play, fight, fantasize, and swagger. Their aggressions, fears, hostilities, and rivalries are a microcosm of adult interaction.
Auditions will take place on Sunday 2nd April at 2pm at St Anne’s Church Hall.
This deceptively simple tale relates the activities of seven English children played by adults on a summer afternoon during World War II. In a woods, a field, and a barn, they play, fight, fantasize and swagger. Their aggressions, fears, hostilities and rivalries are a microcosm of adult interaction. Easy-going Willie tags along as burly Peter bullies Raymond and is challenged by fair-minded Paul. Plain Audrey is overshadowed by Angela's prettiness and wreaks her anger on the boys. All of them gang up on the terrified "Donald Duck" who, abused by his mother and ridiculed by his peers, plays a dangerous game of pyromania with tragic results.
All the cast are seven-year-old children played by adults:
