By John Godber. Directed by Adrian McDougall.
Hilarious, high-energy, and full-blooded, Teechers Leavers ‘22 brings to life an array of terrifying teachers and hopeless pupils through the eyes of Salty, Gail, and Hobby; three Year 11 students facing a scary world, armed only with imagination and a joy of theatre.
It’s 2022 at Whitewall, a struggling academy that’s failed its Ofsted. The bell’s gone and they can’t afford a new one. The first 15 have lost 67 – 0 and the playing field needs leveling up. Sadly, Whitewall is led by donkeys. Enter Miss Nixon, a new drama teacher with a fire in her belly, a lesson for the elite, and a well ‘sick’ Tik Tok!
Will Miss Nixon abandon her students for a soothing private school? Who puts the bounce in Miss Prime’s, the PE teacher, steps? Will Mrs Parry ever find her Koko? And why does everyone smell of spring onions?
Unplug, switch off and buckle up for the world premiere tour of Teechers Leavers ‘22, John Godber’s breath-taking, breakneck comedy about education for the ‘haves’, the ‘have nots’, and a generation left behind.
