What's On | Teechers – John Godber’s classic at The Lights | Andover & VillagesEnjoy this classic comedy about life at a struggling ‘sink’ school from the acclaimed Blackeyed Theatre on Wednesday, 21 March.

In Spring 2018, Berkshire-based Blackeyed Theatre Company embarks on a 47-date UK tour of John Godber’s classic comedy, Teechers. The timeless classroom comedy has made time to stop in at The Lights on 21 March.

This is a revival of Blackeyed Theatre’s highly-acclaimed 2013 and 2015 productions of John Godber’s play about life at a struggling academy for Mr Nixon, an unsuspecting new drama teacher. Featuring breath-taking ensemble performances and a bang-up-to-date soundtrack, Teechers brings to life an array of terrifying teachers and hopeless pupils through the unique eyes of Salty, Gail and Hobby; three Year 11 students about to leave school for good. Crammed full of unforgettable characters, political left-hooks and razor-sharp comedy, Teechers is more relevant today than ever, a modern classic with something vital to say about education for the ‘haves’ and ‘have nots’.

Director Adrian McDougall said, “I can promise audiences a brilliant evening’s entertainment, lots of laughs as well as one or two genuinely touching moments. In the light of recent comments made by government ministers about the importance of Arts in education, the messages contained in the play are more pertinent than ever.”
