This month Sherman Play's joins up with Age Cymru’s Gwanwyn Festival, to offer older audience the chance to see a play reading, tea and cake, and conversation in a celebration of creativity in older age.
This May 26, 11.00am we present another great play professionally performed, script in hand, in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. This will be followed by tea and cake and a post-show discussion led by our Creative Learning team.
Blue Remembered Hills by Dennis Potter
This deceptively simple tale relates the activities of seven children played by adults on a summer afternoon during World War II. They play, fight, fantasise 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.
