CLASS – Tuesday 5th November 2019 at 8:00pm
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, 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, heart-breaking and beautifully observed, with rave reviews and a sold-out run at the Abbey Theatre, CLASS is new Irish writing at its finest.
Tickets: €19/€17 from Box Office or www.theatreroyal.ie
