High Hopes

It's September 1945 and Billy Hopkins is off to London to train as a teacher, with only ten bob in his pocket. Despite his Dad's warning, Billy survives two years in the Big City, and returns to take up his first teaching job in Manchester - on ?300 a year! The catch is his first class, Senior Four, who bitterly resent the raising of the school-leaving age, and are set to take it out on their teacher - luckily the kid from Colleyhurst has some tricks up his sleeves. And Billy is about to fall in love with the beautiful Laura. But is she, as his Dad says, "too good for the likes of us"? Nostalgic, funny and romantic, HIGH HOPES vividly evokes northern life after the Second World War, and will keep you laughing till the very end.
