Three boys break into their school during the holidays to retrieve a confiscated football. They find the school is a different, more exciting place when it is empty. They also look through their personal files.

From the teacher's notes

"Willy Russell feels that the play is about boredom and frustration - the energy of those young people turned to destructive use. It also describes the author's feelings about some of the failings in the education offered them - some of the pupils never get a chance to use those musical instruments provided and merely glimpse the artroom. It is also about property - where can kids in big cities go for the holidays - and who are schools for anyway?" - Scene teacher's notes autumn 1975 p.13.
