The Phoenix Players presents

"Ladies of Spirit"

A comedy by Georgina Reid, Directed by Daphne Breakspear.

Wednesday 26th to Saturday 29th April 2017

At the Arts Centre, Devizes Road, Swindon at 7.30pm.

Gibralta School was funded as a school for young ladies by the two dear old Misses Pye, now deceased.

The long-suffering teachers now have their lives made miserable not only by their pupils but by
the present headmistress, Miss Rowe, known universally as 'Hard Rowe'.

Since Gibralta is a private school, they resign themselves to the fact that there is little that they can
do about it but they find help coming from a very unexpected quarter indeed.
