Twenty-five years after graduation, six former students return to their university college for a reunion dinner. While their lives may have had varying degrees of success, all are connected by a common past. Locked in college for the night, the graduates begin to relive their youth, with all its chaotic friendships and feuds.
During the weekend’s antics, a cabinet minister (David Haig) attempts to cover up a possible career-ending scandal, a priest (Michael Fitzgerald) becomes a nun and the master’s wife (Samantha Bond) may – or may not – have been murdered. The Donkeys' Years ensemble company, directed by Jeremy Sams, also comprises Mark Addy, James Dreyfus, Edward Petherbridge, Michael Simkins, Jonathan Coy and Chris Moran.
