21 Feb - 22 Feb 2023
Select a performance
Hilarious, high energy and full blooded, Teechers Leavers ‘22 brings to life an array of terrifying teachers and hopeless pupils through the eyes of Salty, Gail and Hobby; three Year 11 students facing a scary world, armed only with imagination and a joy of theatre.
It’s 2022 at Whitewall, a struggling academy that’s failed its Ofsted. The bell’s gone and they can’t afford a new one. The first fifteen have lost sixty-seven nil and the playing field needs levelling up. Sadly, Whitewall’s led by donkeys. So’s Whitehall, come to that. Enter Miss Nixon, a new drama teacher with fire in her belly, a lesson for the elite and a well ‘sick’ Tik Tok!
Will Miss Nixon abandon her students for a soothing private school? Who puts the bounce in Miss Prime, the PE teacher? Will Mrs Parry ever find her Koko? And why does everyone smell of spring onions?
Unplug, switch off and buckle up for the world premiere tour of Teechers Leavers ‘22, John Godber’s breath-taking, breakneck comedy about education for the ‘haves’ and ‘have nots’ and a generation left behind.

“Teechers Leavers 22 hits home not only with the same laughter and punchy theatricality as the original but also with the same political rage” – The Guardian
“Teechers will have you in stitches, and at other points leave you angered at the injustice of our education system. It is wonderfully funny and thought provoking and well worth a watch” – Cuckoo Review
“Adrian McDougall’s production for Blackeyed Theatre is energetic and admirably suited to school-age members of the audience ” – Anne At The Theatre
