Description

A special school assembly harking back to the grand old days of the bawdy British boarding school, hosted by drag king and self-proclaimed "Head" Master Mr Brake Down. It's a right carry-on in this St Trinian-esque show as you, the student body, experience the academy announcements, receive a highly stimulating motivational speech from the Head, and hear parables, hymns and storytime as you've never heard them before. This cheeky character comedy show offers drag, debauchery and a dry wit that's sure to suit fans of classic British humour.
