Woolpit Drama Club to stage classic farce

‘The Happiest Days of Your Life’, a classic farce set in a boys’ boarding school, will be presented by Woolpit Drama Club in November.

The film version, released in 1950, starred Alec Guinness and Margaret Rutherford.

In the upheaval of the post war 1940’s, boys and girls from two prestigious schools are billeted together in the same building by mistake, and a heated battle of the sexes ensues between the headmaster and headmistress.

Events spiral out of control as the head teachers struggle for supremacy, leading to finely tuned comedic chaos. Hilarious misunderstandings ensue as school staff try to hide the truth from visiting parents with increasingly frenzied schemes.

Performances will take place in Woolpit Village Hall on November 22, 23 and 24 at 7.30pm. Tickets cost £10 (adult) and £6 (U16) and are available from Elm Tree Gallery in Woolpit, online at www.wegottickets.co.ukor telephone 01359 240393.
