Fast-moving, inventive and highly entertaining, Teechers vigorously evokes life at a modern Comprehensive. Three fifth-formers, using the format of an end-of-term play, exuberantly sketch the new drama teacher’s progress through two terms of recalcitrant classes, cynical colleagues and obstructive caretakers until he departs, disillusioned, for the safe waters of a private school. The play runs the whole gamut of emotions, climaxing with the last scene when the teenagers’ despair emerges from beneath their youthful irreverence, giving a poignant edge to the comedy. Written for three actors to play some twenty characters. Teechers stretches the imagination of cast and audience alike.
