Written and narrated by David Wade
Continuing David Wade's semi-autobiographical story of his school days during the Second World War. The first, "Summer of 39", dealt with a mini-Hitler at a prep school. This play is set in the same school two-and-a-half years later and now evacuated. Greenbaum falls foul of authority for some ill-defined sexual offence. But his draconian official punishment is as nothing to what his fellows, moved by self-righteousness and racial prejudice, inflict on him.
