Laurie Lee grew up in a small country Cotswolds village during a time of change when the rural traditions of past centuries were being swept aside by the oncoming twentieth-century.

The story of a boy’s bewildering childhood in a Gloucestershire village a hundred years ago has become a modern classic.

It has been imaginatively adapted for the stage by James Roose-Evans and is lovingly brought to you by the team that were responsible for plays such as Our Town, Candleford and Lark Rise, including director Neil Arbon who appeared in the 39 Steps.

This funny, sad, energetic and moving adaptation of Laurie Lee’s widely read book, Cider with Rosie comes with larger-than-life characters, brave and dirty deeds, music and song, excitement and discovery, shot through with a warmth and vitality that will stay with the audience, long after the lights have dimmed.

Cider with Rosie is on at The Quay Theatre from Tuesday, May 12 to Saturday 16 at 7.45pm.
