Education, Education, Education is a co-production from Wardrobe Ensemble, Royal & Derngate Northampton and Shoreditch Town Hall, that takes a comedic look at Britain's education system in the 1990s and the teachers and students within the classroom walls. The production will be at NST Campus from the 8th of May till the 12th of May 2018.

The play is set in 1997. Tony Blair is Britain's newest prime minister with his election resting on his battle cry of 'education, education, education!' But at the nearby secondary school, the teachers aren't thinking about politics and Ofsted reviews, they're just trying to survive the classrooms of rowdy children and the onslaught of Tamagotchis that seems to have taken over the school. Education, Education, Education is an ode to everything about the 90s from the music to the schools to the politics, but it's still eerily relevant today when schools are still swathed in education policies that arose in the 90s and the Tamagotchis have simply been replaced with iPads and smartphones.

Education, Education, Education will be at NST Campus from the 8th of May till the 12th of May 2018 for 5 shows. Tickets start at £10 and prices vary based on your chosen seats. Tickets can be purchased online from the NST website or by calling the box office on 023 8067 1771. All performances are wheelchair accessible and have the option for hearing enhancement, but wheelchair and disability bookings are asked to contact the box office to check availability.
