Education, Education, Education

  • Show Information

It’s May 1997. Tony Blair has won the election and Katrina and the Waves have won Eurovision. Channel 5 is a month old. No one knows who Harry Potter is. Britain is the coolest place in the world.
At the local secondary school it’s a different story. Miss Belltop-Doyle can’t control her year 9s, Mr Pashley has been put in charge of a confiscated tamagotchi and for some unknown reason Princess Anne is attending the Year 11 leavers assembly. Tobias, the German language assistant, watches on. Things can only get better.
The show is devised by The Wardrobe Ensemble, who have created three Christmas shows for the Bike Shed Theatre and won huge critical acclaim with their production of 1972: The Future Of Sex. Their new show Education, Education, Education uses the company’s trademark inventive theatricality and irreverent humour to explore the stories that have shaped our recent political history, and to think about what the future might look like.
