A group of seven-year-olds in wartime Britain are playing in the sunshine but soon, their childlike teasing turns to bullying and fighting.
Potter’s ground-breaking play, written in 1979, still has the power to shock with its exploration of cruelty and lost innocence, yet it is also funny, charming and nostalgic.
The cast (aged between knocking-on-forty and seventy-four) are getting in touch with their inner seven-year-olds and limbering up for some spitfire-imitation, headstands and squirrel chasing – it has got to be seen to be believed!
