By Dennis Potter, 1995.
Blue Remembered Hills is a straightforward play of children at play, seeing and interpreting the world as children do yet played by adults. It is 1943, in the West Country, with war in the air and the world of adults still largely a mystery. The different children have different fears and temperaments. They tease, play, argue, chase a squirrel. It is still a world of considerable innocence, but innocence comes tumbling down in an awful climax.
