Tudor Players are bringing this adaptation of Laurie Lee’s classic book on his memories of life in a Cotswolds village to the stage next week.
The cast of 24, headed by professional actor Roger Bingham as Lee, the narrator, take a nostalgic look back at life in the Gloucestershire village of Slad in the last year of World War One.
The story, seen through the eyes of Lee as a small boy, Loll, reflects the changes in life as the path of 20th-century progess begins to change his little world forever.
A parade of warm and comic characters, both in young Loll’s family and the village community, bring a lost time back to life.
Phil Gascoyne directs the show, which runs from Tuesday to Saturday next week at the theatre in Tudor Square.
It is the last of the company’s Vintage Classics season which has also featured Our Man in Havana and Deathtrap.
