  • Overview
    The play is about students from an inner-city school in Liverpool who go on a trip to Conway Castle in Wales. Mrs Kay teaches a class of illiterate pupils, called the "Progress Class". At the last minute, the disciplinarian Deputy Headteacher, Mr Briggs, also joins.

    It was written for a film which was broadcast by the BBC, and was later adapted into a musical.
