Arts TheatreLondon

Brian’s Dad is a war hero and he’s coming home any day! He’s been coming home for 7 years… It’s 1952 and the country is rebuilding itself. King George is dead and Rock ‘n’ Roll is here to stay. Brian builds his own little family at Great Stony School with his rabbit Pandy, friends Gladys, an orphan, George, who doesn’t know where his parents are either and Mr Bill his Welfare Officer. Then there is Miss Bates, the Headmistress of Great Stony who rules the school with an iron fist. The children look forward to Sports Day – a day off Bates’ rules and sanctions. However, heads turn when glamorous teenager Pam appears to unravel the past and reveal a shocking secret that will turn Brian’s world upside down, forever.
