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.
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.
