Production Notes

Now in their fifteenth year, Castaway continue their excellent reputation for producing poignant drama amidst the intimacy of the Arts Centre Studio with Godber’s most celebrated comedy. Set in a troubled comprehensive school, somewhere in Britain, ‘Teechers’ follows the experiences of three disillusioned teenagers – bored with school and about to leave with no prospects. Then the new Drama teacher arrives and, with the help of the school play, their lives change. Teechers is a fast paced and hilariously funny portrayal of life in a modern comprehensive. Godber’s kaleidoscope of instantly recognizable characters range from the charming trendy teacher to the morose caretaker as a galloping story unfolds. Do not miss Castaway’s exuberant and moving revival of this comic classic from the writer of “Bouncers” and “On the Piste”. Performed in the round, and sold out both nights! * These roles are narrative and have been created for the purpose of this production
