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.
