Description

“First class songs and satire rooted in the experiences of ordinary people. They make us laugh, they make us cry, they make us angry, they make us think.“  Paul Mackney, former Joint General Secretary, UCU

Chicago tells the story of the Chicago Teachers Union's successful strike in 2012, demonstrating that another education system is possible. By weaving together music, song and inspirational video footage it explores their successful organising agenda that empowered their members and mobilised parents, students and the wider community. That agenda produced a strike vote of 98% on a 90% turnout, 9 days of mass pickets, creative sit-ins and demonstrations covering 840 schools across the city, and hundreds of vocal and active supporters.

Banner Theatre has a 40 year track record of creating powerful, punchy productions in collaboration with trade unions and other campaigning organisations. "Chicago:The Great Teachers Strike" was produced with financial support from the NUT.
