Description

Faulty Towers meets Bad Education. It’s Monday morning at a sleepy further education college in the Midlands. The caretakers unlock the building and a Drama teacher is rehearsing Romeo and Juliet. Just as a group of career-worn teachers are about to begin period one, the call comes through to the Principal and Ofsted arrive! Cue hilarity, romance and a little murder in this new farce written by Phil Porter and performed by KGS Theatre Company in their fourth outing at the Fringe. 'The cast demonstrates the intellect and talent their generation has to offer' (BroadwayBaby.com).

Absolutely brilliant. Audience laughing from the start all the way through. Really talented , hard working cast. No weak links. Probably the best thing we’ve seen this year at the festival. It deserves to be a sell out. Go and see! You won’t be disappointed.

This was our first show of the Fringe - we loved it. A superb collection of performances from this young cast. As a teacher, it resonated fully with me and I appreciated all the nuances. A wonderful way to start our day! Do go if you can!

Loved this hilarious show. If you’ve ever had anything to do with a school (and most of us have) then you’ll have a laughter packed 80 mins.
