Ayr Fort Players proudly bring to the Gaiety this hilarious farce by John Dighton. ‘The Happiest Days of Your Life’ is sure to get you laughing out loud, as complications ensue due to an administrative error when St Swithins girls' school is made to share premises with Hilary Hall boys' school. Set during World War II, the all-girls school of St Swithins is evacuated from London to avoid the Blitz. The female students and staff are relocated to Hilary Hall Boys School, whose headmaster, Wetherby Pond, is none too amused! He and St Swithins headmistress, the unswerving Muriel Whitchurch, agree to keep their mixed-sex school a secret to avoid upsetting the parents. But how long can they keep up the deception without being driven mad...?!
