Casting has been announced for Iseult Golden and David Horan’s upcoming production of Class, which will receive its London premiere at the Bush Theatre. First performed at the Dublin Theatre Festival in 2017, Class follows Brian and Donna and their nine year old Jayden, who is struggling in school. When a school meeting between Brian, Donna and Jayden’s teacher Mr McCafferty, the parents decide whether to trust their child’s teacher in a play looking at masculinity in education.
Brian and Donna’s son, Jayden, is nine years old, and he’s struggling. 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 is a “hugely entertaining” (Irish Times) and “emotionally explosive” (Mail on Sunday) confrontation over learning difficulties, love and entitlement. Side-splittingly funny and beautifully observed, with rave reviews, a sold-out run at the Abbey Theatre and a Fringe First Award from Edinburgh, CLASS is new Irish writing at its finest.
