'Cider With Rosie' 

by Laurie Lee (Adapted by Daniel O'Brien)

 

June 2011

Synopsis

Laurie Lee's gentle and beautifully touching story recounts the defining moments of his adolescent life, recalling glorious outings, frozen white winters, long hot, hazy summers, tyrannical teachers, erratic family life and of course that first cider-fuelled encounter.

Just mind them pots then
