The Happiest Days of Your Life is a 1950’s British comedy play written by John Dighton.
Set in 1949, confusion reigns when St Swithin’s Girls School is accidentally billeted at
Nutbourne College: a boys school and the two heads, Wetherby Pond and Muriel
Whitchurch try to cope with the chaos that ensues.
The parents of the St Swithins girls would consider it very improper for their daughters to
be exposed to the rough mix of boys in Pond’s school, and the comedy is derived
from the attempts of the teachers to conceal the fact that the girls are now
sharing a school that’s full of boys. At the same time Pond, the boy’s
headmaster, is offended at the suggestion that his boys are not suitable.
We have some wonderful outfits which are absolutely perfect for the characters in
this type of play. From the gym slips and boaters, to the games mistress with
her white skirt and velvet jacket, to the overdressed mothers and matron, you
will find a perfect outfit including accessories to complement your show.
