Kent College combined all of its formidable theatrical resources to stage this effervescent farce.

"A rollercoaster ride of comedic chaos, executed effortlessly by our ambitious pupils."

From the 9th 12th February, Kent College Pembury was transported from a cold English winter, to summer in Vienna at the turn of the 19th century. With specially designed sets, the most elaborate the school has seen for many years, beautiful Edwardian costumes and a cast of over 60 hugely talented actresses, this production of Tom Stoppard's outrageous farce certainly had all the wit and panache to banish the winter blues.

The plot revolves around the chase of two naughty grocer's assistants who, following their master's binge with a new mistress, escape to Vienna on a spree. The complexities of Stoppard's script were handled masterfully by the gifted cast who ensured that the audience were left roaring with laughter.

It was clear that the cast and crew had dedicated a lot of hard work to the production, alongside the expert direction from Kent College staff. Special recognition and thanks to the school's Head of Drama, Nigel Ashton who designed and sourced the set, as well as producing and directing the show.
