New Season Of Drama: Now On Sale!

New Season Of Drama: Now On Sale!

Spring 2023 sees us welcome two iconic drama productions to The Atkinson. These productions are very different but rest assured you will laugh, cry and be moved by the stories of these characters.

Blackeyed Theatre in association with South Hill Park presents:


Get in the school spirit with John Godber’s timeless comedy about life at a struggling academy for Mr Nixon, an unsuspecting new drama teacher. Fast-moving, inventive and highly entertaining, Teechers brings to life an array of terrifying teachers and hopeless pupils through the unique eyes of Salty, Gail and Hobby; three Year 11 students about to leave school for good.

Will Mr Nixon abandon his students for a green and pleasant private school? Who puts the bounce in Miss Prime, the PE teacher? Will Mrs Parry ever find her Koko? And why does everyone smell of spring onions?

Brought back to the stage with high energy, break-neck comedy and breathtaking ensemble performances – and shortlisted for the 2021 Music and Drama Education Awards – Teechers is a modern classic with something vital to say about education for the ‘haves’ and ‘have nots’.
