FIVE STARS‘Another triumph… Superb’ The Sunday Telegraph


Willesden, 1957. A convent girls’ school. Bad habits… and boys.

The nuns at Our Lady of Fatima preach chastity and diligence as the swinging sixties approach.

Final exams loom. The day of reckoning is nigh. But for the girls in class 5A, their last year in uniform is set to be one of discovery of the less holy kind…

A riotous comedy directed by Kathy Burke.

Presented by Tricycle Theatre and Royal Court Liverpool

Please note: strobe lighting is used in this performance

FOUR STARS ‘A winning production… Devilishly funny’ The Daily Telegraph

FOUR STARS‘Good, unrepentant fun’ The Sunday Times
