Play

This event has ended.

Brian and Donna’s son, Jayden, is nine years old and he’s struggling. That’s what his teacher says. Mr McCafferty thinks Jayden should see a psychologist. But Brian and Donna never liked school, never liked teachers. So, are they going to trust this one? And should they?

CLASS is the story of a parent-teacher meeting that flies off the rails. An explosive triple confrontation that is funny, heart-breaking and beautifully observed. This award-winning show looks at the plight of teachers on the frontline and the pressures of modern masculinity. There are no answers in this classroom, but plenty of questions, as we explore the uncertain territory where prejudice, damage and failed intentions collide.

It is a play about learning difficulties: in school, in life, wherever.

“God. I hate classrooms. Give me the heebie-jeebies. Even still.”
