TEECHERS at Home

21 Apr 2020, Posted by admin in Latest2

Nicole Black (Gail), Jake Addley (Salty) and Rosalind Seal (Hobby)

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.

Our thanks to the cast – Jake Addley, Nicole Black and Rosalind Seal – as well as the artistic team and John Godber for making this possible.

For information about extended access to Teechers for the 2020/21 academic year, visit Teechers Online.

    This is so generous. I saw this show many years ago in Margate. One of the best versions I have seen. I use with my senior students ( I now teach in NZ). If you could send me the link so that I can share this with my pupils whilst we are in lockdown, I would be so grateful.

      Hello,
      Our students love Godber and I showed your trailer for this production to my 6th formers a few weeks ago.
      It would be amazing if you could share the link, the production looked fantastic!
      Can I share it with students for online learning too? I’m sure year 10 and year 12 would love it!
