    Now home after the first day back at school, Billy Fibber, our seventeen-year-old “hero” is looking back on the day now done, and all the many, many more to come. As he says in the opening line of the piece “first day of school today … only another 194 to go.”

    Billy is a bright, lazy, slightly introverted boy with an extremely vivid imagination. He spends much of his time just drifting away into his thoughts and is capable of day-dreaming himself into trouble as equally as much as he can fantasise himself out of it. Billy’s First Day Back is a new, original piece, written especially for the screen, and based around other adventures of the central character from our play “William B”; itself inspired loosely from both Keith Waterhouse’s novel “Billy Liar” and “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” by James Thurber.

    In this piece, as Billy shares his thoughts with us, we meet, among other characters, Billy’s arch enemy, Stevie-O, who is as fierce and dumb as ever, and the new love of Billy’s life, this girl who has returned to school “shockingly different” after the long break.
