When Mrs Kay's 'Progress Class' are unleashed for a day's coach trip to Alton Towers they can hardly believe their luck...until Mr Brigg's gets on board. With the destination changes to Wales, a battle of wits ensues between the exuberant pupils and the humourless Mr Briggs.
This updated and extensively revised version of Willy Russell's much loved play features additional songs while retaining the humour and poignancy of the original.
