TEECHERS at Home21 Apr 2020, Posted by Uncategorised in
We’re delighted to announce that, with the kind permission of John Godber, we are making available to schools our 2018 archive recording of Teechers. Access will be free of charge to teachers while theatres remain closed as a result of COVID-19.
There are many challenges facing teachers and students during the lockdown, and access to live theatre is just one of them. So, having received requests from a number of schools for access to footage of one of our productions of Teechers, we’re very pleased to be able to offer this support to teachers and students of Drama and Theatre Studies.
Education has always been central to what we do, and having toured Teechers three times since 2013, it’s a play we’ve grown very attached to. A classic comedy about life at a struggling academy, 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. 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’, featuring breathtaking ensemble performances and a bang-up-to-date soundtrack.
