From the teacher's notes

"A bright sparky, intelligent girl who is unemployed, returns to her old school to help with the catering at the leaving party of one of her old teachers who has been pressed into taking early retirement. As a result of what happens, she and he realise they share similar feelings about what it is like to be able and willing to work, but not wanted." - Scene teacher's notes autumn 1984 p.19.

"Just Deserts deals with several themes: sexual harrassment; progress and tradition; young love; social class; unemployment. The play focuses, however, on a school event, where all these issues become inter-related. Students will be able to discuss the play purposefully by comparing the situations of Mr James and Joanne Piper - an unlikely pair of rebels. Though they are far apart in terms of age and experience, they both find a need to speak out against what they see." - Scene teacher's notes summer 1994 p.31.
