Preview: Teechers Blackeyed Theatre Company on tour



Teechers By John Godber


In Spring 2015, Berkshire-based Blackeyed Theatre Company embarks on a 43-date UK tour of John Godber’s classic comedy, Teechers. The timeless classroom comedy has performances at theatres throughout England and Scotland from 22 January until 28 March.

This is a revival of Blackeyed Theatre’s highly-acclaimed 2013 production of John Godber’s play about life at a modern comprehensive for Mr Nixon, an unsuspecting new drama teacher. Fast-moving, inventive and highly entertaining, 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.

Combining 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’.

Director Adrian McDougall said, “I can promise audiences a brilliant evening’s entertainment, lots of laughs as well as one or two genuinely touching moments. In the light of recent comments made by government ministers about the importance of Arts and Humanities subjects in schools, the messages contained in the play are more pertinent than ever.”

Adrian McDougall directs Jake Addley, Lucy Benson-Brown and Brad Clapson in a production choreographed by Scott Jenkins. The artistic team includes Victoria Spearing, Charlotte McClelland (lighting design) and Jenny Little (costume design).
