A new Doric Comedy

by Charles Barron


In an Aberdeenshire school that had better remain anonymous, something strange is boiling up in the kitchens. We take the lid off the plot - and you'll never again feel the same way about school dinners.


The fascinating characters include three dinner wifies whose combined skills barely qualify them to use a tin-opener – if they had one. And if they did they’d probably slice a finger off. The teachers are more concerned with their private lives than with the education of the pupils and the school cleaner lives in a world of her own. Add a Health and Safety Inspector to the menu and the comic situations culminate in a surprising climax.


This cheerful Doric comedy will have you asking for more.
