Archives - Our Day Out

by Willy Russell
Music by Bob Eaton & Chris Mellor

Directed by Steve Ansell

Saturday 31st December 1988 – Saturday 7th January 1989 in the Auditorium

Sad, funny and true to life, Willy Russell’s television play has been adapted for the stage and given lively exuberant songs. It tells of a bunch of under-privileged schoolchildren who are taken on a day’s outing by their teachers.

A joyous celebration of the joys and agonies of growing up and being free from school, but also a sharp pointer to the depressing present and empty future for the no-hopers, for whom a day out is as much as they can expect.

Part of the Barn’s 1988/1989 season
