AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Set in England in the 1950s and 60s, we follow the often comic fortunes of a group of kids - from the chaos of primary school to the uniformity of secondary school, sexual awakening and the trials and tribulations of adolescence. The austerity of post-war Britain gives way to the freedoms and problems of the 'Swinging Sixties' as the kids and their parents face a changing world and values. Written with the assistance of an Edith Cowan University research grant, and the contribution of WAAPA acting students.' (Source: Australian Script Centre website)
