Education, Education, Education

The Wardrobe Ensemble

It's the 90s - Tony Blair has just won the election, Katrina and the Waves have won Eurovision, and no one knows who Harry Potter is. Oasis is king - Britain is the coolest place in the world.

At the local secondary school it's a different story. Tobias, the German language assistant, watches as this ordinary school goes through an era of immense change. Miss Belltop-Doyle can't control her year 10s, Mr. Pashley has been put in charge of a confiscated Tamagotchi, and Miss Turner is hoping that this muck-up day goes smoother than the last.

Devised by the Wardrobe Ensemble,
Education, Education, Education is a love letter to the school system, childhood nostalgia, and really bad club music. Things can only get better.

This amateur production is presented by an arrangement with Nick Hern Books.

ADC Theatre


WED–THU £7–£10, FRI–SAT £8–£10.50

The ADC Theatre is Britain's oldest University playhouse, today administered and maintained by the University of Cambridge. Plays have been presented on the site since 1855, when the Cambridge University Amateur Dramatic Club (CUADC) was founded, and the society met and performed in the back room of the Hoop Inn, which stood almost exactly where the ADC Theatre stands today.  Today, the ADC Theatre is the centre of University drama in Cambridge, run almost entirely by students with no Faculty involvement.
