About the Show Less...

Based on real life stories from the classrooms and corridors of London's secondary schools. Read More >

One school, a world of cultures. Within the din of a dozen dialects, how does any one voice make itself heard? Allegiances and bitter rivalries soon emerge, as these new Britons jostle to assert their identities and make sense of each other’s.

Created from real life stories by theatre company Tamasha and performed by Southwark-based youth theatre REACT, Lyrical MC lets us eavesdrop inside the classrooms and corridors of London’s secondary schools.

Suitable for ages 11+

Unlike film, theatre doesn't have an official age classification organisation. That means all age recommendations are subjective and should be treated as guidelines unless otherwise stated. With this in mind, we ask you to use your judgement in regards to a show’s suitability prior to purchase. However, we are more than happy to help you make a decision.
