Rowan Atkinson stars in Simon Gray’s quintessentially British 1960’s drama set in an English language school for foreigners.
Written by Simon Gray with his characteristic incisive wit, this tragicomic play is a humourous but ultimately moving account of several years in the lives of seven teachers.
At the heart of the group is St. John Quartermaine (Rowan Atkinson) – kind, pleasant and agreeable, but utterly hopeless as a teacher. An almost permanent feature in the staff room, he’s always available to listen to the problems of his self-obsessed colleagues. But when a new Principal is appointed, Quartermaine’s future looks precarious…
***** “This production represents the West End at its very best: A great play, beautifully directed and acted by an outstanding cast… magnificently funny and deeply touching triumph” Telegraph
