Blackeyed Theatre, in association South Hill Park, presents
By John Godber
Directed by Adrian McDougall
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’.
“Their remarkable transformations through the slightest of gestures or movement are a wonder to behold”
“A definite straight A”
“an excellent production and a performance that got a rapturous ovation from over 200 students”
“one can see that Godber has earned his place at the top but Blackeyed Theatre Company should be right up there with him”
“The rhythm these three have built between them is like electricity. They are so so tuned in to each other and carried the show beautifully to entertain a very full house with their talent and exuberance.”
“Catch this show if you can, Godber is a great writer and Blackeyed Theatre Company are a great company. What a winner!”
