Programme Note #1: Our Day Out

MB wrote: “Our Day Out is Young Wick’s fourth major production and my fourth year directing this talented group of young performers. I cannot express enough the pride and gratitude I have towards this dedicated cast. Their energy and enthusiasm h been shown in every aspect of the production. I wish to also thank Ryan Lainchbury and Kevin Isaac, who have been supportive throughout.

On and off stage, Young Wick have contribute to designing and putting together the production getting involved in lighting, sound, costume and publicity. They have proved, after winning Brighton & Hove Council awards lat year, that they are an ensemble company who can perform and produce show of excellence standards.

Our Day Out was written in the late 1970s by Willy Russell. The play is based on his experiences of trips in his own school in Liverpool. The play chronicles a day out for the progress class taken by their teacher Mrs. Kay. Determined they should enjoy themselves, she is overshadowed by the oppressive senior teacher Mr. Briggs, who believes the kids should behave and have fun in an orderly fashion.

Let Young Wick take you on the unforgettable day out. Remember, were you one of the kids making gestures out of the coach window?”
