Young Vic associate director Matthew Dunster directs his pungent and hilarious new play in the Clare
following a debut run at the Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester this autumn.
Sex, fury, violence, chatting back, school, your mum and dad - and a nightmare of a paper round!
Beautiful, sharp and moving, You Can See the Hills recalls those moments growing up that are at the
same time unique and universal: a dark moment of rebellion against your mum, the bloodlust of your
gang, the summer evening feeling that you'll live forever.
This is a vivid, fast-talking, visceral snapshot of life growing up in the 1980s. Adam crashes through his
teens and haphazardly steers himself out of Oldham and into adulthood. William Ash (Clocking Off,
Doctor Who) will play Adam.
Writer and director Matthew Dunster's recent Young Vic productions include the Olivier nominated Love
and Money and The Member of the Wedding. Matthew directed the world premiere of David Edgar's
new play Testing the Echo at the Tricycle. He recently returned from the HIFA arts festival in Harare,
Zimbabwe where he led workshops for young directors.
