1969. Ernest Shepard looks forward to a V+A retrospective of his drawings for Winnie the Pooh. Until in an imagined meeting with his young model, Christopher Robin Milne, some painful truths emerge. By Christopher William Hill.

Other parts were played by Sean Murray, Ben Crowe and Philippa Stanton

Directed by - Peter Kavanagh

Award-winning playwright Christopher William Hill, in a gentle and moving play, speculates about an encounter late in life between the ninety-year old illustrator and the troubled Robin Milne, then in his fifties, and who has endured a lifetime of being identified as the golden-haired child in the Winnie The Pooh books.

Against the backdrop of an actual retrospective of Shepherd's work, this imagined meeting dredges up reminders of a lifetime of anguish for both men. But together they will attempt to put that pain finally to rest.
