Next Lesson @ Above the Stag

by Chris Woodley
directed by Andrew Beckett

“I am going to talk about homosexuality in my lesson Val. Because you stand there saying that we aren’t allowed to, when really... I think you don’t like gay people.”

The laugh-out-loud, thoughtful and inventive Next Lesson charts 18 years in the life of a fictional South London school.

In 1988, 14 year old Michael comes out as gay. Later he returns as a teacher. In the background: the notorious Section 28 of Thatcher’s Local Government Act, which prohibited schools from “promoting homosexuality”.

Next Lesson is Chris Woodley’s much-praised play about being gay at school: male and female, staff and students. It was first staged in a sell-out run at the Pleasance Theatre. Enjoy Andrew Beckett's brand new production.
