Lord Dismiss Us

Based on the novel by Michael Campbell and adapted and directed by Glenn Chandler, Lord Dismiss Us was a hit in Edinburgh at this year’s fringe.

In the play a homophobic new headmaster and his religious wife bring a reign of terror to a boys’ boarding school. Prefect Terry Carleton is madly in love with fourth year Nicholas Allen, the chaplain has paintings of naked youths in his study, while English master Eric Ashley fights the good fight with his own inner demons. Will morality be restored? A wickedly funny and darkly poignant play, based on Campbell’s 1960’s novel.

Dates: 25 October – 19 November 2017
