Presented by Gemco Players
Director: Tanya Ryder-Barnes
Fast-moving, inventive and highly entertaining, Teechers is John Godber’s brilliant take on life at a modern Comprehensive. Through their hilarious end-of-term play, three fifth-formers exuberantly sketch the new drama teacher’s progress through two terms of recalcitrant classes, cynical colleagues and obstructive caretakers. This is a modern classic with something vital to say about education for the ‘haves’ and ‘have nots’.
