Not sure about seeing a play about teachers BUT this was warm funny and performed brilliantly Well done!

Christine McDerment 83 days ago

A great show, well performed by two very passionate young people. The content may seem amusing to the audience but it is sad to think that the two performers are actually real teachers and have genuinely experienced such dreadful behaviour from pupils, fellow teachers and parents. Well done for managing to put it all into an hour's performance and good luck in the future.

This is a fantastic show, we thoroughly enjoyed it, and it’s a real eye opener into the world of teaching! Witty, and well organised...kept our attention from start to finish. A must see!

I watched this fantastic show on Tuesday, which was played to a full house ( now that I've seen it, totally justified). Amazing energy from both of the actors produce a hilarious and at times ,very touching performance which draws you ,so closely into the numerous characters, and gives an eyes wide open view of our modern education system ! as Offsted would say "OUTSTANDING".

Loved this show - such energy from both performers. I am in awe of my colleagues who teach in England, not sure how they keep on going. Stay as enthusiastic as you can you tow & lucky pupils to have you.
