New Irish Writing, CLASS to Open at Bush Theatre

First performed at the Dublin Theatre Festival in 2017, CLASS by Iseult Golden and David Horan opens at the Bush Theatre, London on 7 May.

CLASS is the story of a parent-teacher meeting that flies off the rails. This award-winning show looks at the plight of teachers on the frontline and the pressures of modern masculinity. Funny and beautifully observed, the play had a sold-out run at the Abbey Theatre and won a Fringe First Award at Edinburgh. CLASS is new Irish writing at its finest.

God.  I hate classrooms.  Give me the heebie-jeebies.  Even still

Brian and Donna’s son, Jayden, is nine years old and he’s struggling.  That’s what his teacher says.  Mr McCafferty thinks Jayden should see a psychologist.  But Brian and Donna never liked school, never liked teachers. So, are they going to trust this one? And should they?

CLASS is a “hugely entertaining” (Irish Times) and “emotionally explosive” (Mail on Sunday) confrontation over learning difficulties, love and entitlement.

CLASS is at Bush Theatre 7th May – 1st June 2019.
