By John Godber


Fast-moving, inventive and highly entertaining, 'Teechers' is John Godber’s brilliant take on life at a modern Comprehensive. Through their hilarious end-of-term play, three Year 11s exuberantly sketch the new drama teacher’s progress through two terms of recalcitrant classes, cynical colleagues and obstructive caretakers.

Disillusioned, he departs for the safe waters of a private school, and leaves behind his students, whose youthful irreverence gives way to despair. Godber’s original play was first performed in Edinburgh in 1987. The play raises issues of class, sexism and the importance of drama and arts to young people.
