The Understudies present Blue Remembered Hills
by Dennis Potter
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, 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.
