MUST SEE: Class at the Bush Theatre

FIRST PERFORMED at the Dublin Theatre Festival in 2017, Class by Iseult Golden and David Horan opens at the Bush Theatre, London on May 7.

Class is the story of a parent-teacher meeting that flies off the rails. This award-winning show looks at the plight of teachers on the frontline and the pressures of modern masculinity. Funny and beautifully observed, the play had a sold-out run at the Abbey Theatre and won a Fringe First Award at Edinburgh.

The production, which has been labelled as “hugely entertaining” by the Irish Times and “emotionally explosive” by the Mail on Sunday, tells the story of Brian and Donna’s son, Jayden, a nine year old who is struggling. Well, that’s what his teacher says.

Mr McCafferty thinks Jayden should see a psychologist, but Brian and Donna never liked school, never liked teachers. So, are they going to trust this one? And should they?

Class has been celebrated for exploring confrontation voer learning difficulties, love and entitlement in a thoroughly entertaining production. It’s directed by Iseult Golden, an actor, writer and director whose work includes The Roy Rap for the Little Roy Series (Jam Media / CBBC), The Importance of Being Whatever (IFTA Winner 2012) and Belonging to Laura and David Horan, a theatre director and writer.

Additional cast and crew include Stephen Jones, Sarah Morris and Will O’Connell.
