Dennis Potter's acclaimed television play - though the most straight forward and realistic of his popular works - is both hilarious and an incredibly moving story. Through the simple act of using adults in the roles, Potter was able to emphasise the darker aspects of children's innocence and imagination, creating an altogether more complex and ambivalent picture of that "Land of lost content". On an idyllic summer afternoon in 1943, a group of children play in the West Country hills, fields and forests. With no adults around, they indulge in spontaneous games and horseplay - sometimes echoing the distant war, at other times revealing their own insecurities and petty vindictiveness. But as they tease, fantasise and fight the day away, their innocence is about to be destroyed forever.
Tickets £10 (£8 concessions). Earlybird price until the end of April 2020.

This exciting Pink Floyd tribute band return for what has now become an annual appearance following their highly acclaimed shows at Daneside Theatre in the last four years.
Offering an engaging and energetic show, they have been especially praised for the accuracy of their performance based on the studio versions of music spanning the entire output of the Floyd from early days, with firm favourites Dark Side, Wish You Were Here, Animals and The Wall particularly featured. The music is enhanced by a fabulous light-show including Floyd's distinctive circular screen. All your favourites are featured, and maybe a couple of less familiar tracks for the real afficionado.
“Unbelievably awesome! Music buzzing in our heads on our walk home and still singing today” (M&T)
“What a brilliant performance, the band was faultless. A brilliant set of tracks. Can’t wait to see them again” (P Abbott)
“Stunning rendition of Echoes and Andrea’s Great gig in the sky was the best I have heard since the release of DSOTM. Can’t wait for the next show” (Brian Parker)
“Finishing with Comfortably Numb, Alan Tarpey blew the crowd away with his jaw-dropping solo that the audience were still gasping and chattering about as they left the room” (Seren Hughes-Jones, QuaysNews)
“My heroes will never be forgotten as long as you are on the stage and that’s from a 68 year-old roadie of the original PF! You are another brick in the wall!" (David Larkin, former PF roadie)

Daneside Theatre is an independent theatre with a charitable status that aims to provide a venue for the community that all ages can benefit from.
The 300-seat theatre is located just on the edge of the town centre just off the Mountbatten Way, the dual carriageway that runs through the town. It is the home of various amateur groups as well as being available to hire for shows and business events. The original theatre built in the 1980s was extended in 2000 to add rehearsal rooms, scenery store and provides better access and facilities for all theatre users.
These facilities enable shows of all types to be staged, from plays to musicals, films to dance shows, pantomimes to concerts. So we aim to have something to suit all tastes during our season.
For further details of our shows this current season see the What’s On section.
Over the next two years we will be embarking on an exciting project to improve the foyer area of the theatre, and small improvements to the auditorium and back stage areas.
