Education Education Education
It's May 1997. Tony Blair has won the election and Katrina and the Waves have won Eurovision. Channel 5 is a month old. No one knows who Harry Potter is. Britain is the coolest place in the world. But at the local secondary school it's a different story.
Education, Education, Education is The Wardrobe Ensemble's love letter to the schools of the 90s and asks big questions about a country in special measures, what we are taught and why, and where responsibility lies.
Following its sell-out run in 2017, former Made in Bristol company The Wardrobe Ensemble (1972: The Future of Sex) return to Bristol Old Vic with their trademark inventive theatricality and irreverent humour to explore the stories that have shaped our recent political history, and to think about what the future might look like.
