About this Production

Gibraltar School was founded as a school for young ladies by the two dear old Misses Pye, now deceased. The long-suffering teachers now have their lives made miserable not only by their pupils but also by the present head-mistress, Miss Rowe, known universally as “Hard Rowe”. Since Gibraltar is a private school, they resign themselves to the fact that there is little they can do about it, but they find help coming from a very unexpected quarter indeed.

She has directed several plays with our theatre, such as “The Traveller’s Table” by Hugh O’Brien and “California Suite” by Neil Simon. Silvana has brought her vast experience to the committee in many aspects.
