The fast-moving play 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? And why does everyone smell of spring onions?

Brought back to the stage by Blackeyed Theatre with high energy, break-neck comedy and breathtaking ensemble performances, Teechers is a modern classic with something vital to say about education for the ‘haves’ and ‘have nots’.

Tickets for the production cost £14 (concessions and schools £9).
