Little Theatre Company
Live theatre in the heart of Burton upon Trent
The Happiest Days Of Your Life
by John Dighton
Performed: March 2006
The story is set at the end of WWII. The pupils and teachers of a South Coast girls' school, St Swithin’s, are relocated to alternative accommodation as their own school has been a casualty of wartime bombing.
Thanks to a bureaucratic mix-up, they wind up sharing the quarters of a boys' school, Hilary Hall, in Hampshire.
The harried headmaster and headmistress, together with both sets of teachers, try to keep visiting parents from discovering the dilemma as the whole thing turns into a battle of the sexes.
These problems are forgotten however when news is received that a third school is to join them and all unite to repel boarders.
