CULTURED REBELS

A Play

by STEPHEN HIRST

 Cast:  12 speaking parts (9m, 3f) + min. 2 non-speaking but easily adapted for as few as 4 (all m).
 Suggested Age Range:  15 to 18
 Approx. Running Time:  80 minutes with full cast. (55 minutes in abridged version)
 Music:  None.
 Set: A premier independent boarding school. A housemaster's study; part of a sports hall in use for examinations; the second master's study.
(Can be minimal - a couple of desks could suffice).
 Synopsis:  Boarding school rules have always been disobeyed a bit but when "anarchy" appears on the list of official school activities and the brightest and best of the Sixth Form are apparently signing up for it, perhaps things are a little out of hand? What will the press make of it? Will the school's standing in the league tables be affected?
A wickedly funny satire which raises uncomfortable questions about what schools ought to be doing, featuring much sharp dialogue, opportunities for elements of farce and the scope to slip in the occasional sly joke. Anarchic but intelligent fun!
