P'Tang Yang Kipperbang

P'Tang Yang Kipperbang is an enchanting comedy set in post-World War Two Britain. Based on a story by Jack Rosenthal, it studies a teenage boy's relationships and period of sexual awakening.

John Albasiny stars in the role of a cricket-obsessed adolescent, Alan Duckworth, who lusts after his classmate Ann (played by Abigail Cruttenden). When the pair score the lead roles in the school's drama production, Alan finds himself in the awkward situation of having to pull off a proper snog scene with his real-life crush.

P'Tang Yang Kipperbang is a tender but telling film, which brilliantly evokes the teenage anguish of a familiar coming-of-age story.

First released: Sunday 16th September 2007
