CLASS

CLASS by Iseult Golden and David Horan

Friday 15 November, 8:00pm  |  Reserved Seating  |  Tickets: €20 / €18 (conc)

Early Bird for Registered Teachers (Until 31 September): €15

CLASS by Iseult Golden and David Horan was the hit of the Dublin Theatre Festival 2017 and was then invited to play on the Peacock Stage at the Abbey Theatre in January 2018 before transferring to the Galway International Arts Festival and the Traverse Edinburgh Fringe in the Summer of 2018.

A parent-teacher meeting goes very wrong in CLASS – a new play about learning difficulties: in school, in life, wherever. Brian and Donna’s son is nine years old, and he’s struggling. That’s what his teacher says. Says he should see a psychologist. But Brian and Donna – recently separated – never liked school, never liked teachers.  So are they going to trust this one? And should they? CLASS is an explosive triple confrontation in a classroom over learning difficulties, love and entitlement. Funny, heartbreaking and beautifully observed, with rave reviews and a sold-out run at the Abbey Theatre, CLASS is new Irish writing at its finest.

‘With an outstanding cast, a laugh-out-loud yet gut-wrenching story this thoroughly enjoyable show reflects our fractured zeitgeist brilliantly.’
‘There has been a dearth of Irish plays about social issues even though problems such as the role of absent fathers and the lack of educational psychologists concerns many. This sharply observed play not only hilariously captures a dysfunctional parent-teacher meeting, but also tackles our class divide’ 
 SUNDAY TIMES IRELAND Oct 8th, 2017 ★★★★★

'Three terrific performances, two exceptional writers and directors, and one extraordinarily brilliant script' THE ARTS REVIEW, Jan 20th, 2018 ★★★★★
