Our Day Out – CANCELLED. We’re hoping to reschedule this for a later season.
By Willy Russell
Directed by Debs Brooks
Join the ‘Progress Class’ on a rare outing from the deprived area in which they live. Accompanied by their ever patient teacher Mrs Kay and disciplinarian Mr Briggs the group cause havoc as they stop off at a zoo, castle and petrol station along their way to a theme park.
Exploring themes of education, poverty and the ever present social glass ceiling, Willy Russell draws on his personal teaching experience of an inner city school with hilarious and heart breaking results. With an array of roles to choose from, this funny, gritty play is a great vehicle for our youth theatre.
