'Cider With Rosie'
by Laurie Lee (Adapted by Daniel O'Brien)
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.
A beast of an ancient dream
Hands is light as feathers
Then you throw 'im up in the air
Just mind them pots then
Poor sad creature
