Attic Antics – Farcical Comedy Play set in a School

$5.50

Georgie and Cindy, school bullies, have found the perfect hiding place for the sweets they’ve taken from the younger kids – the attic at school. This will be the place where they can hide out, eat their booty and generally just have fun, without being found by anyone! After all, no one ever goes there…
Lenny and Henry, incompetant burglars, plan to hit the school’s safe tonight with a little help from the inside. All they need to do is wait in the attic for Maxie, who works there, to let them into the school after dark.
Unbeknownst to the four mentioned above, the school is in trouble. It’s a case of a missing will, and a new forged one stating that the school is now the property of Mr Bungle, the nasty brother of the head who wants to sell the building as he has gotten into a boatload of debt. The head teacher has searched everywhere for the original will. Everywhere except the attic….
Add a boy dressed as a girl (Katie) who’s actually the son of Mr Bungle, sent in as a spy to find the will before his sister does and a lot of people hiding in closets and laundry baskets and you have Attic Antics! A comedy play set in a school.
