"A marvellously witty ó and at times poignant take on the ëbest years of our lives" Eastern Daily Express

River Deep Mountain High is perhaps the first ëGreat Comprehensive School Novelí that shows what is going on at the sharp end. In it Calway follows a cast of misfits and cretins and that's before talking about the pupils - in their day-to-day lives at a Welsh Comprehensive. He extracts every last gram of humour from the stupidity of the league table driven education system as the teachers dream of a Rock & Roll lifestyle while everything collapses around them.

A cast of misfits and cretins and that's before talking about the pupils !

Originally written and performed as a critically acclaimed play, River Deep Mountain High draws on Calway's years of experience in education and is a beautifully written and observed portrayal of a disintegrating education system, which is both hilarious and poignant and says more about life in Britain today than a satchel full of inspectorís reports.

"Very funnyÖa metaphor for a country in decline." the Guardian
