Education, Education, Education Tickets

London Play
The Wardrobe Ensemble's Education, Education, Education receives its long-awaited West End premiere at Trafalgar Studios.
It's May 1997. Tony Blair has won the election and Katrina and the Waves have won Eurovision. Channel 5 is a month old. No one knows who Harry Potter is. Britain is the coolest place in the world. But at the local secondary school it's a different story. Education, Education, Education is The Wardrobe Ensemble's love letter to the schools of the 90s and asks big questions about a country in special measures, what we are taught and why, and where responsibility lies. Following its sell-out run in 2017, former Made in Bristol company The Wardrobe Ensemble (1972: The Future of Sex) return to Bristol Old Vic with their trademark inventive theatricality and irreverent humour to explore the stories that have shaped our recent political history, and to think about what the future might look like.

    Very enthusiastic and energised performance. Welcomed the ' lulls' in the frenetic activity greatly assisted by the role of Tobias who I think gave a sense of reflection in contrast to the bombardment that teachers must feel they are subjected to on a daily basis. Could have done with the music being lowered before the show began.

    A fun show especially if you are or have been a teacher! Especially enjoyed the German assistant's performance and the PE teacher's. A telling insight too ino the problems schools are facing now.

    Great little Theatre. Show was ok. Found it too frantic at times, a little too stressful to watch. Paid full price for tickets then found out the seats were all reduced to £30! Show was worth £20 a seat really.

    Really enjoyed this humorous play set in 1997 which made me relive the glory days of my youth. Loved the dance music of the era played before the show. So much better in the late 90s than now. Great acting and loved the quirky dancing of this energetic play. Everyone put their heart and soul into it. The different characters reminded me of teachers from my school days. Interactions with the audience also added to the show which lasts 80 mins (no interval). Definately interested in viewing other productions from the Wardrobe Ensemble. Feelgood nostalgia with a modern twist.

    Show was superficial, although had a few funny moments

  • Review Avatar Jun 19, 2019

    Nice reminder of the vibe and politics of Blair's 90s. Nothing mind-blowing. Good, lighthearted entertainment.

    As American educators we found it painfully funny.

  • Review Avatar Jun 23, 2019

    Great play and use of humour to portray the education system. The characters were real and believable. A great night out
