THE STORY: What begins as a small incident ultimately grows into a cause celebre nearly shaking the foundations of the government. The incident is simply that of a youngster in an English government school who is expelled for an alleged theft. As a matter of fact, the youngster was en-tirely innocent, but practically all the evidence was against him. The boy's family, Inparticular his father, proceed to contest the decision of the school and chal-lenge its right, as a government-run institution, to damage the reputation of a boy without sufficient legal safeguards. The issue which began as a private matter involves the right of official agencies to impose their authority on the individuals of any democracy and, as the play moves relentlessly forward, we see in effect, citizens of a democracy challenging the forces of bureaucracy, and thus keeping alive the issue of the basic rights of the individual.

Sir Terence Rattigan was one of the most popular English 20 th -century dramatists. His first play, First Episode , was produced in 1934; his best-known later works include After the Dance , Flare Path , The Browning Version and The Deep Blue Sea. Many of his plays have been adapted for film, and are frequently revived. He also served as an RAF tail gunner in WWII.
