Education, Education, Education

Witness one of the most sought-after shows that took the Wardrobe Theatre in Bristol and the Edinburgh Festival Fringe by storm earlier this season! A brilliant play put together by the award-winning Wardrobe Ensemble, Education, Education, Education is a provocative and bold look at what goes on inside schools in Britain.

Why Watch Education, Education, Education

Following the wildly successful run of another education-themed play, Admissions, at Trafalgar Studios, Education, Education, Education is set to take audiences back to the glorious era of 1990s England. The show is a peek into the importance of education in a modern democratic context and comes at a time when progressive giants like America seem to be devolving into politicizing and undermining the value of education. At one of Britain’s well-known institutes, a sizable number of teachers have agreed to massive salary cuts of up to £7000 to keep their colleagues employed. Directed by Jesse Jones and Helena Middleton, the production is humorous and inventive while still managing to communicate its core ideas in a crystal clear fashion. It won the Scotsman Fringe First Award for its exquisite depiction of England in 1997 and the compelling message that it expounded through the plot.

The Story

The iPhone is still a few years away from hitting the market, Titanic has just bagged the Eurovision, Tony Blair is the new Prime Minister, and JK Rowling is still in the process of writing Harry Potter - it is May 1997 in England. Everything seems to be looking good for the UK, but the same cannot be said about the local secondary school. Tobias, the new German teacher, is greeted by an eccentric band of school teachers, including Miss Belltop-Doyle and Mr. Pashley, who are simply attempting to make it through the day unscathed. With all its Spice Girls, Teletubbies, and other nostalgic references, the show is certain to transport you right back to the United Kingdom in the late ’90s.
