Roma Beaumont and the Cast

Mrs Kay has planned a day out for the Progress Class, a group of kids from a school in a depressed area of Liverpool who have difficulty reading and writing.  All appears to be going well until the Headteacher sends the officious Miss Briggs to make sure the kids behave themselves.  The play covers the day when the class stop at a cafe (where the kids nick the sweets), the zoo (where they nick the animals), Conwy castle, the beach and, finally, the fair where Miss Briggs' harsh exterior crumbles.
