Education, Education, Education comes to Trafalgar Studios

They say there’s nothing like a good education. So we’re thrilled that The Wardrobe Assembly’s hit comedy Education, Education, Education is making its way to the West End this summer.

Set in the ’90s, you can take a walk back through time when Britain was changing – for the better, it would seem. As Great Britain wins the Eurovision Song Contest and Tony Blair becomes Prime Minister, the country seems different… positive… happy. But at the local secondary school, it’s a different story. It’s the last week of term and Tobias – the new German language assistant – has just arrived in the UK. While political change occurs outside of the classroom, a revolution slowly starts to take place within it. Tobias is greeted by a group of eccentric schoolteachers just trying to make it through the day, including Miss Belltop-Doyle who can’t control her Year 10s and Mr Pashley who is trying to keep a confiscated Tamagotchi alive.

In addition to throw-back, pop-culture references like the Teletubbies and The Macarena, Education, Education, Education is packed full of ’90s hits from the likes of Oasis, Katrina And The Waves, The Spice Girls, and more.

The cast will include: Tom Brennan (Paul McIntyre), Ben Vardy (Tim Pashley), Jesse Meadows (Susan Belltop-Doyle), Emily Greenslade (Emily Greenslade), James Newton (Tobias), and Tom England (Hugh Mills). Further casting will be announced later.

The whip-smart comedy which won The Scotsman Fringe First Award and The Stage Edinburgh Award will play at Trafalgar Studios for a limited four-week run from 31 May – 29 June.

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.

While theatres are currently closed, various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows, including cancellations and rescheduled performances. Please check with the individual shows for details.
