This is a comedy. The Chav state school and the Posh private school face off in the inter-school orienteering challenge final. Whilst out in the wilds one of the posh kids has an accident which forces the two groups to co-operate and behave responsibly. They are all benighted together, finding out that they actually have much in common.

Meanwhile back at the finishing line it’s the waiting parents and adults who behave badly. They should be worried about their offspring, but have a party instead. So it’s the kids who are the responsible adults and the adults behave like kids are supposed to.

This play was first performed at Theatre by the Lake in Keswick Cumbria. There are a couple of references to Lake District mountains which you may have to edit.
