There's A War On, You Know is a comedy of errors:
It's late 1941 and St Cecilia's School for Young Ladies is well into rehearsal for 'The Mikado', to be presented in May for Founder's Day. But when Japan enters the war, the Bishop (or rather the Bishop's wife) decrees that 'The Mikado' would be quite unsuitable. The school's efforts to overcome this disaster become entwined with the activities of the local VDF (Home Guard), which meets at the school. When some girls attempt to explain the plot of 'The Mikado' to a young VDF recruit, he thinks they are talking about a real event, and relates a garbled version to his captain. The play climaxes in an 'invasion' of the school during Founder's Day.
