The school run might never be the same again. What happens when mums turn up to Miss Prisk’s meticulously run school, still wearing their pyjamas or other forms of night wear? The result is a very funny play by Suzie Gale. See how the traditionalists get on in their battle against the mums, in a school which is already in special measures. Suzie Gale used to be part of the highly successful performance poetry duo, Wordy Birdies. She works in Coleg Cambria.

Admission is free. The performances will be the script in hand. In Shakespearean fashion, we will pass a hat around at the end!

Both writers are members of the newly formed Wrexham Playwrights
