Year 8 is left without a teacher. To relieve the boredom they launch an expedition - two students who never break the rules are sent to steal something from the headteacher's office. The unlikely criminals return as heroes and set about re-enacting the theft. In the ensuing chaos one student discovers that he too has been the victim of theft and accusations fly. Perfect for classroom performance, David Grant's witty play covers conflicts of gender, academic ability and conformism. Whatever schools and teachers may hope, it is the students who decide their own fate.
