Perfectly Public (Back Door Productions)

By | Published on Wednesday 31 August 2011

How are public schools received by the general public? Or should that read ‘the plebs’ instead? The cast is put at the task to produce an unbiased documentary about this theme: their boss did not go to public school, his employees did. The result is a hilarious musical therapy session: bullying at the girl’s school, undecided sexual orientation for the boys, parents who are too stuck in their own little lives to care, and teachers with strange preferences and methods – and of course the effects of this throughout their lives. The home-made songs show entertaining skills and have the audience in heaps of laughter as does the twisty script. Good fun no matter what school you went to!

Zoo Southside, 21 – 27 Aug, 7.40pm (8.30pm), £5.00 – £7.00, fpp287.
