Teechers By John Godber directed by Jane Harris

Details

In the 1980s, Hull Truck Theatre became a global success story, and ‘Teechers’, written by its Artistic Director John Godber , was one of the plays that made it so. ‘Teechers’ had a revival and tour in 2010 as Godber left Hull Truck after 26 years. John Godber’s ‘Teechers’ is GCSE material.It is a play within a play in which three students put on a performance to their teachers, acting out their time in secondary school – particularly their time with Mr Jeff Nixon, who has ignited their love for drama and the belief that all children should be treated equally. Fast-moving, inventive and highly entertaining, Teechers brings to life an array of terrifying teachers and hopeless pupils through the unique eyes of Salty, Gail and Hobby; three senior students about to leave school for good, and uses contemporary chart music for relevance.Towards the end of the play the three kids learn that Mr. Nixon may be leaving to teach at a ‘superior’ school, and they start to understand how much he has helped them.
