Teechers
Author John Godber
Overview A LIGHT HEARTED COMEDY SET IN A BRITISH COMPREHENSIVE SCHOOL IN THE MID EIGHTIES, JOHN GODBER’S TEECHERS LOOKS AT THE BRITISH EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM WITH A TWIST OF CONTROVERSY AND HUMOUR.
USUALLY PLAYED ON STAGE BY THREE ACTORS WHO TAKE ON THE ROLE OF 20 CHARACTERS WITH NOTHING MORE THAN A TABLE AND CHAIR PROVIDING THE VARIOUS SETTINGS IN AND OUTSIDE A COMPREHENSIVE SCHOOL HALL.
ACTORS USE PLASTIC NOSES AND GLASSES AND WIGS TO HELP WITH THE CHARACTER DIFFERENTIATION. HOWEVER, WHEN THE PLAY IS PRODUCED WITH A LARGER CAST THEN THERE IS USUALLY A PROPORTIONAL INCREASE IN PROPS.
TEECHERS REVOLVES AROUND MR NIXON, THE DRAMA TEACHER AND THREE OF HIS STUDENTS, SALTY, GAIL AND HOBBY. THE SCENES CENTRE ON MR NIXON’S DRAMA LESSONS WHICH EVENTUALLY LEAD TO A PERFORMANCE OF THE MIKADO.
DURING THE MAYHEM AND TEENAGE ANGST THAT DEVELOPS THROUGHOUT THE PLAY, VARIOUS OTHER TEACHERS AND STUDENTS ENTER AND LEAVE PROVIDING MANY HILARIOUS MOMENTS OF CONFRONTATION AND ANXIETY.
THE MANIC DRAMA LESSONS AND ALSO THE OTHER LESSONS THAT THE PUPILS SIT THROUGH WITH MUCH PROTEST, ULTIMATELY LEAD TO THE POINT THAT ONCE TALENT HAS BEEN TAPPED IN SCHOOL THE RESULT IS OFTEN STAGGERING.
THE PLAY HIGHLIGHTS THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN STATE AND PRIVATE EDUCATION AND THE LACK OF EDUCATION FUNDING IN A SUBTLE MANNER, WHILST CONCENTRATING ON THE DIFFICULTIES FACING TEACHERS AND THE FUN AND FROLICS OF THE TEENAGE PUPILS.
