About the Show Less...

Following a sell-out run in 2008, Matthew Dunster’s tale of growing up returns to the Young Vic. Read More >

Sharp and moving, You Can See The Hills recalls those moments growing up that are unique and universal: a dark moment of rebellion against your mum, the bloodlust of your gang, the summer evening feeling that you will live forever.

You Can See The Hills is a potent mix of sex, fury, sex, violence, sex, chatting back, sex, school, sex, your mum and dad, sex and a paper round.

You Can See The Hills was first staged at the Young Vic in 2008, when it enjoyed a sell out run.

Playwright, director and actor Matthew Dunster, who both wrote and directs You Can See The Hills, is an Associate Director of the Young Vic, where his productions include The Member Of The Wedding, Some Voices, and Love And Money. Elsewhere he his directorial credits include The Frontline (Shakespeare’s Globe) and Cruising (Bush theatre).
