‘A class act’ - Mail on Sunday
An unruly bunch of bright, funny sixth-form boys in pursuit of sex, sport and a place at university. A maverick English teacher at odds with the young and shrewd supply teacher. A headmaster obsessed with results and a history teacher who thinks he’s a fool.
‘A superb, life-enhancing play’ - Guardian
