WHO cares about education? We all do. Don't we?
A powerful new play, Dumbing Down, spotlights schools in the grip of the National Curriculum - assailed by tests and targets, beset by league tables and inspections.
First hand experiences and news reports have been distilled into a comedy/drama about a young teacher at the start of his career.
This hard-hitting, topical satire includes rapping, Shakespeare, gender-swapping and an opportunity for the audience to throw rubbish at the actors!
