SYNOPSIS

Set after World War II, this delightful farce is about what happens when a boys' school receives the news that they are to billet another school which is all female.  

 

Events are complicated by the arrival of the parents.  

 

Each headmaster/mistress tries to conceal the fact that his/her school is now coed.

 

Eventually, the parents learn the truth and are about to remove their children when news arrives that a third school is to be amalgamated into theirs. They all join together to keep out these intruders.
