Richard

Although it gives a shocking portrayal of childhood, this play was great fun.

Dennis Potter asks for the cast of children to be

played by adults and we accepted the challenge with gusto  -   violence and all. 

We began with a photo shoot/rehearsal in Yearsley Woods. The peaceful landscape was shattered by shouts and laughter as we hid behind trees and scrambled through bracken and brambles.

Jonathan set the play in the round. It was an enjoyable challenge. I learned a lot about positioning and movement.
