On Thursday 19 and Friday 20 March 2009 Speyside High School presented a play written by Mr Ben Harris.

I spent six lousy years in high school and all I got was

This Lousy Education

 

Playwright, Mr Ben Harris said:

'Do you remember what it was like to be a pupil? Well, you soon will! I spent six years in high school and all I got was This Lousy Education is a humorous yet poignant journey through the last year of education for Katy Marlowe, a girl who has always found it hard to fit into the status quo. Over the course of the play, she encounters bullies, nerds, teachers and former-bad boys, and she comes to learn that maybe living in the world isn't such a bad thing after all.  

Loosely based on The Taming of the Shrew and A Midsummer Nights Dream by William Shakespeare, ...This Lousy Education is a snapsot into the world of young people - showing that it's not perfect, but it's a lot better than the alternative.'
