William and the School Report

Martin Jarvis performs the first of two comic classics at The Orange Tree Theatre, Richmond. A full house rocks with laughter as he entertains, solo, as William Brown.

Award-winning Martin Jarvis performs the first of two Richmal Crompton comic classics, live on-stage. It's Just William as stand-up!

It’s the last day of term. William is depressed. He’s got to have holiday coaching unless his school report is a really good one.

It isn’t. It’s the worst he’s ever had.

As he walks slowly home through the woods he meets an old lady. She’s lost. It’s his father’s aunt who is coming to lunch at his house. Then William has one of his most brilliantly lateral ideas.

A packed house at The Orange Tree Theatre, Richmond, Surrey rocks with laughter as Martin Jarvis performs as William and the batty aunt.
