It’s Friday afternoon at a certain public school, and that can only mean one thing: it’s time for the Head Prefect to present the week’s miscreants for their traditional caning from the Headmistress. There’s a motley collection outside her office this week; she’s going to have her work cut out.
First up is bratty tearaway Jay, who never learns when to keep his smart mouth shut. He’s certainly creative; even the Headmistress gives a wry chuckle as she’s updated on his exploits. He puts on a brave face through his caning – but winds up getting himself more than he’d bargained for.
Next is David, a first-timer, and it’s pretty clear there’s more to his story than he’s telling. As a member of the boys dorm he gets to pick whether he’d rather be caned by the Headmistress or the Deputy Head, and having just gawked at Jay’s vividly striped backside he asks for Mr. Millner to be brought in. More fool him: Mr. Millner teaches History, the very subject David bunked off, and he is not impressed by the boy’s attitude about his beloved subject.
After that it’s Rosie’s turn. She’s been lounging in the hallway this whole time, gloating and winding the newbies up – but she has a secret of her own. Week after week she winds up back over the vaulting horse, often for some minor incident that for anyone with a less chequered record would barely qualify as a caning offence. Could it possibly be that she enjoys this indignity?
And then…then there’s Willow. Willow doesn’t belong here; she’s a good girl, and this was all a terrible mistake. After listening to the cracks coming from the Head’s office all afternoon, she’s terrified and practically weeping as she’s called in and told to bend over. The Headmistress is resolved not to go easy on her, and her tears are a testament to the power of her cane.
With the day’s work over, there’s one more bit of business to clear up. The Head Prefect is in most ways a reformed character, but everybody slips up occasionally – and it’s the Headmistress’s job to keep them in line!
With two tops, five bottoms, six punishment scenes, an immersive boarding school location and a cast featuring a range of trans, non-binary and BIPOC performers, Queueing for the Cane is a spanking tour de force and our most ambitious project yet. As far as we know it’s the first time a project like this has ever starred a Black Headmistress. We’re delighted to be able to share it with you all, and we know you’ll love it as much as we do.
