- Our Day Out
A play by Willy Russell, originally written for television and first broadcast in 1977.
"The play centres on a school trip to Conwy Castle in North Wales. Mrs Kay teaches a class for illiterate children, called the 'Progress Class'. At the last minute, the Headmaster commissions Mr Briggs, the authoritarian Deputy Headmaster, to supervise the trip.
Although planned originally as a trip to the castle, they also end up going to the zoo, beach and fairgrounds. Mrs Kay and her helpers are all very kind, but have little hope for the children.
Mr Briggs is a start contrast to Mrs Kay, thinking that the children are spoilt, don't work hard enough and don't have a chance in life."
