About Blue Remembered Hills

Into my heart on air that kills From yon far country blows: What are those blue rememberedhills, What spires, what farms are those? That is the land of lost content, I see it shining plain, The happy highways where I went And cannot come again. A. E. Housman This outdoor, site-specific production takes audiences on a journey to a hidden landscape, officially closed to the public for more than a century. Under the shadow of war, seven children are playing in the countryside. As their games escalate, the boundaries between fun and cruelty become ever more blurred, leading to disastrous consequences. Last seen at GDIF in 2017 with their production of A View from the Bridge, De Roovers is one of Flanders most respected theatre companies, returning with a production which will take audiences to a restricted 250 acre site, which holds memories for local residents of munitions factories from the Royal Arsenal and, with their demolition and the establishment of Thamesmead in the late 1960’s, of childhood explorations.
