What is it?
Flora Thompson’s enduring portrait of growing up in rural Oxfordshire in the twilight years of the nineteenth century, and her vivid account of the dawn of a new age of ‘progress’ that would sweep away the centuries-old way of life she knew so well, has captivated readers for more than half a century. Now New Perspectives, acclaimed for its many productions exploring life in rural England, past and present, has transformed Flora Thompson’s gentle masterpiece into a funny, touching, engrossing new theatre show. A faithful account of this unsentimental yet deeply affectionate picture of village life, and a delightful introduction to an unforgettable cast of characters.
