Blackeyed Theatre, in association South Hill Park, presents

Teechers

  • By John Godber
  • Directed by Adrian McDougall
  • Designer - Victoria Spearing

Blackeyed Theatre revives its highly-acclaimed production of John Godber's classic comedy about life at a modern comprehensive for Mr Nixon, an unsuspecting new drama teacher. Featuring breathtaking ensemble performances and a bang-up-to-date soundtrack, Teechers brings to life an array of terrifying teachers and hopeless pupils through the unique eyes of Salty, Gail and Hobby; three Year 11 students about to leave school for good.

Will Mr Nixon abandon his students for a green and pleasant private school? Who puts the bounce in Miss Prime, the PE teacher? Will Mrs Parry ever find her Koko? And why does everyone smell of spring onions?

Crammed full of unforgettable characters, political left-hooks and razor-sharp comedy, Teechers is more relevant today than ever, a modern classic with something vital to say about education for the 'haves' and 'have nots'.
