Description

Burning Books, a play by Jess Green

What should schools do when they are losing so many teachers?

On Kat's first day as a student teacher at Hurstville Community College, Nicky Morgan announces forced academisation for all state schools. Kat is ready for the picket line but her attempts to join the NUT are met with contempt by union stalwart Janine. The head teacher is invisible and the staff are more concerned about losing their staff room, disappearing books and a History teacher who hasn't been seen for weeks.

A powerful and humorous look at an education system buckling under government cuts and targets.

"Green has struck a chord with exhausted teachers up and down the country"- The Guardian

Organised and supported by Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland National Education Union (NEU).

Open to everyone.
