Laurence Edward Alan “Laurie” Lee was born in 1914 and grew up during a time of change when the rural traditions of past centuries were being swept aside in the name of 20th Century progress.
This evocative and poignant stage version by James Roose-Evans creates a charming memoir of Lee’s childhood in a remote Cotswold village, a world that is tangibly real, yet reminiscent of a distant past.
“That first long secret drink of golden fire, juice of those valleys… wine of wild orchards… of plump red apples, and Rosie’s burning cheeks. Never to be forgotten, or ever tasted again…”
