Award winning, smash-hit comedy Education, Education, Education arrives in London this Summer for a strictly limited West End season.
With its singular style of irreverent humour and inventive theatricality, THE WARDROBE ENSEMBLE present ‘a fiery new comedy’ Time Out about the education system in 90s Britain interwoven with Tony Blair’s Cool Britannia and the hits of the day.
See how things can only get better in an award-winning production that combines politics with comedy.
Education, Education, Education is booking from 31 May 2019 until 29 June 2019 at Trafalgar Studios One, London.
WHAT’S THE STORY?
It’s May 1997. Tony Blair has won the election and Katrina and the Waves have won Eurovision. The iPhone doesn’t exist, no one knows who Harry Potter is and Titanic is on the shelves of every Blockbuster. Britain is the coolest place in the world.
At the local secondary school, it’s a different story. It’s the last week of term and Tobias, the new German language assistant has just arrived in the UK. While political change occurs outside of the classroom, a revolution slowly starts to take place within it. Tobias is greeted by a group of eccentric schoolteachers just trying to make it through the day, including Miss Belltop-Doyle who can’t control her year 10s and Mr Pashley who is trying to keep a confiscated Tamagotchi alive.
