Dennis Potter Double Bill

April 5 @ 19:45 - 22:15

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 7:45pm, repeating until 6th Apr 2019

Frome Drama Club will tackle two of Dennis Potter’s short plays. Both will be directed by John Palmer who may be new to FDC but is very well known and respected as a South West director of huge experience and diversity.

Blue Remembered Hills is set in the Forest of Dean in the summer of 1943. Adult actors play seven-year old children, and we see their aggressions, fears, and rivalries as a microcosm of adult interaction, whilst questioning any preconceptions we might have about the innocence of childhood.
Brimstone and Treacle is a cautionary, Mephistophelean drama commissioned by the BBC in 1974 but mothballed for 13 years as too controversial. A mysterious young man named Martin ingratiates himself with an older couple, Tom & Amy Bates, who are full time carers for their adult daughter, Pattie. Martin’s arrival heralds catastrophic change.
