Teechers Leavers '22 - On Demand

As part of Hull Truck Theatre’s 50th anniversary celebrations, John Godber reimagines his iconic play for the leavers of 2022.

Salty, Gail and Hobby are departing Whitewall College for uncertain futures in uncertain times. Burn out, pregnancies, stress, affairs, depression; no-one is exempt, from the students, and security staff, to the business-minded Principal. How much more can a system take?

In 1987 the teaching of drama in Comprehensive education was being marginalised in a system under pressure. In the same year Hull Truck Theatre produced Teechers which was to become the go-to play to attract young people to the theatre. Thirty-five years later, exam chaos, tech poverty, isolation, absenteeism and lost school hours have put the state system under more pressure than ever before.

Highly physical, hugely funny, deceptively radical, mixing dance and spoken word, Teechers Leavers ’22 is alive and in your face; back in Hull where it all started.
