In a failing comprehensive school in Stockton-On-Tees, teacher Matt Dolby is struggling to inspire his art class. But then he spots 16-year-old Ryan Nesbitt's grafitti in the school toilets and, before either of them know quite what has happened, the skateboarding schoolboy is being hailed as the enfant terrible of the London art-scene. Inglorious Technicolour is a playful satire on contemporary art and OFSTED.
The other two plays in this volume are written for large teenage casts. In the blackly comic Death to Mr Moody, the reluctant choir of St Hilda's Community School go to farcical lengths to plot the untimely death of their despised choirmaster. The Jonah Lie is an off-beat romantic comedy, set in a small whaling community at the turn of the century. Life in the village changes forever when sailor James True claims to have been swallowed and spat out by a whale of biblical proportions.
