Just a slight correction. This certainly wasn't a comedy :-) I remember it so well because I had to suffer under a number of sadistic masters at the school I then attended. In this play the Carstairs character gradually softens and there is some nice dialogue between the boy in detention and the master. Probably only exists now in the BFI archive. In which case there it will stay, obsessively guarded by some strange people who see their job as keeping the only copies "safe" but without ever letting anyone see it. I utterly despair at the attitude of the BFI.
