By Blackeyed Theatre in association South Hill Park

Friday 27 Feb, 7.30pm
By John Godber
Directed by Adrian McDougall

Blackeyed Theatre revives its highly acclaimed production of this classic comedy about life at a modern comprehensive for an unsuspecting new drama teacher. Fast-moving, inventive and highly entertaining, Teechers brings to life an array of terrifying teachers and hopeless pupils through the eyes of three Year 11 students about to leave school for good. Brought to the stage with high energy, great comedy and terrific ensemble performances, this is a modern classic with something vital to say about education for the ‘haves’ and ‘have-nots’. Recommended age 12+.

Expect topical new songs hot off the press, plus some outrageous old favourites, as Fascinating Aïda continue to grow old disgracefully.
