CLASS | The Peacock Theatre at The Abbey Theatre, Dublin| Jan 24 - Feb 3 |
‘Donna always sh*ts a brick – I mean, she gets all nervous – comin’ in here. It’s like she reverts.’
Brian and Donna’s son is nine years old, and he’s struggling. That’s what his teacher says. Says he should see a psychologist. But Brian and Donna – recently separated – never liked school, never liked teachers. So are they going to trust this one? And should they?
A parent-teacher meeting goes very, very wrong in CLASS – a new play about learning difficulties: in school, in life, wherever. Created by theatre artists and screenwriting duo, Iseult Golden and David Horan, CLASSexplores the complications and comedy when three adults find themselves back in class.
