A brilliantly written and performed work of England dealing with its war-time struggles. A master writer and satirist at work.

I was greatly privileged to see Alan Bennett and Sir John Geilgud (as the headmaster) in this creation of his in the West End at the tail-end of the ?swinging sixties? in 1969. This more recent audio recording does justice to the play, with one exception ? only strains of the classic ?The dogs they had a party? can be heard, as the victorious rugby team return. A full rendition was called for! This is a great listen, but be warned ? there is no slapstick stuff here. The humour ranges from the subtle, the laconic, to the lavatorial.
