When James breaks his Granddad's last conker he vows to replace it. Conkers are banned at school. The Headmistress hates them so much she orders that every conker be destroyed. James's mate Robert tells him where the best conkers can be found but they are overheard by the headmistress's spies. The boys and their friends chase off the council workers collecting the conkers but are caught red handed by the headmistress. James's Grandad comes to the rescue and challenges the headmistress to a game. If Grandad wins they will escape punishment.

Main Characters


James - or Jimmy as his Grandfather calls him is determined, focused & single minded but can be a little naive & not quite as bright as his peers.

Robert - Bright, clever & a bit cheeky. Although he can be kind & thoughtful at times he can also be a bit of a chancer, looking for how he can profit from any situation.

Sybella & Priscilla Sneak - (Ideally they would be played by identical twins & look like Wednesday Adams) They are teachers pets. They think they have no need of friends, they have each other. They think alike & are in the habit of finishing off each others sentences.

Lots of other Childrens parts Ranging from quite a few lines to just a few words.


Grandad - A kindly, gentle man, with an impish sense of humour, entering his second childhood but fiercely protective of his little Jimmy. He delights in sharing & teaching Jimmy about the childhood pastimes he enjoyed as a youngster.

Mildred Sternly - Headmistress & a stickler for rules & regulations. She rules by fear & is liable to tantrums when challenged. Her hatred of conkers is due to her being accused of cheating at a conker tournament when she was a girl.

Council Worker #1 - Childish, lazy, oafish & sly he is not afraid to deal out a bit of physical violence but like most bullies he crumbles when challenged.

Council Worker #2 - Childlike, easily led & manipulated despite his physical size. A sandwich short of a picnic.
