DARTINGTON PLAYGOERS PRESENT ‘Cider with Rosie’ by Laurie Lee
Wednesday 17 – Saturday 20 July at 7.30 in Studio 31 at Dartington Dartington Playgoers have used the Dartington estate to inspire their latest production. Based on Laurie Lee’s 1959 autobiography, the play Cider With Rosie is Dartington Playgoers’ summer production.
Laurie Lee’s Cider With Rosie is a play about childhood, change and the countryside. The local landscape has been the inspiration to recreate the rural world of this contemporary classic. ‘We have been re-discovering a lost world – the kind of village life that was to disappear with the arrival of the car and the emergence of electricity just after the First World War. A very different, rural age. Richard Clark, director
Set in an idyllic Cotswold village immediately after the First World War, we meet an eccentric family, tyrannical teachers and aspiring entertainers. They live in a landscape of traditions and memories. Laurie re-imagines the glorious outings, frozen white winters and hot hazy summers of his childhood. He also recalls that first cider-fuelled encounter… Remembering is to re-live, to be in the same moment all over again. Laurie Lee Cider With Rosie is a contemporary classic. Adapted for the stage, this play captures Laurie Lee’s life, times and dreams.
