Susan Macbeth is the tale of one highly unqualified English teacher’s adventure to a small coastal community, to spread a love of literature and not get burned alive in a wicker effigy. In equal parts tragic and comic, but at least 85% comic, join this hapless educator as he navigates the world of poorly behaved students, absurd workloads, and the insanity of his fellow teachers. You’ll never say teachers just work 9 til 3 and then bunk off for the holidays again. Except you will, because how else could he be here for the whole of August instead of working?

Previous praise for the performer:
‘utterly compelling’ Cambridge Theatre Review
‘accomplished’ Varsity
‘Superb…. sent the audience into frequent fits of laughter’ Varsity
‘Particularly strong’ Ed Fringe Review
