School season at the Bush
New play the Knowledge follows new teacher Zoe’s trials and tribulations at a failing comp
AS teaching standards continue to act as a political football little time is spent considering the lot of your average state-school teacher.
Cue The Knowledge, at the Bush Theatre, in Shepherd’s Bush, which aims to give a humorous but poignant insight into the trials of a young teacher in a failing school.
Written by John Donnelly, who has worked at primary and secondary schools across London and the South-East, expect the play to have a hint of the fabulous Channel 4 series, Teachers.
The blurb tells us being a teacher means weekends, thirteen week holidays and a secure job in uncertain times.
