Dennis Potter’s powerful play follows the action of seven children in the countryside on a long summer’s afternoon in 1943. Escaping the domestic struggles of wartime Britain they spend their time playing and fantasising about their fathers far away in the war.
With no adults around, the group create their own social order, constantly shifting allegiances and fighting for power. Innocence, enthusiasm, cruelty and bullying are exposed in a play that still has the power to shock over thirty five years after it was written.
