“Why would they attack the most popular teacher in the school?”

After 45 years as a dedicated teacher, Edward is looking forward to the imminent celebration to mark his retirement. But his home is under siege. A mob of angry students have gathered. A brick has been thrown through the window, he and his wife haven’t left the house for six days, and now his estranged daughter has arrived with her own questions.

Mark Ravenhill’s taut domestic drama explores power, control, identity and gender as well as considering the major failure of the echo-chamber of liberalism.
