Dennis Potter's examination of memory and childhood, set in the impoverished Forest of Dean

during WW2. At times hilarious, this is an incredibly moving story. Using adults in the children's roles,

Potter is able to emphasise the darker aspects of children's innocence and imagination, creating a

complex and ambivalent picture of that "land of lost content".

On an idyllic summer afternoon in 1943, a group of children play in the West Country hills, fields

and forests. With no adults around, they indulge in spontaneous games and horseplay - sometimes

echoing the distant war, at other times revealing their own insecurities and petty vindictiveness.

But as they tease, fantasise and fight the day away, their innocence is about to be destroyed forever...

PANTOMIME PINOCCHIO

 

It’s panto time again ... ‘oh, yes it is’ and what better story to tell this year than one of the most magical and moralistic of fairytales – Pinocchio. This panto really has it all: a cast of amazing and colourful characters, plenty of raucous audience participation, a gondolier chase and even a full-sized whale on stage!

All three of us have had the most amazing experiences within the world of pantomime, either as audience members, part of a production team or as performers.

Under Milk Wood

by Dylan Thomas

directed by Harry Atkinson

 

To begin at the beginning: It is spring, moonless night in the small town, starless and bible-black...


Thomas' celebrated "Play for Voices" is a celebration of the trivia, dreams, desires, imaginings, and just plain life of a small Welsh fishing village "of no particular significance" on one Spring Day. Gorgeously intertwining narratives and digressions into a seamless whole, we meet the residents of Llareggub, nestled in the bay under the "Mystic Tumulus" of Milk Wood
