“I am part of the Teaching Crisis. In that sentence I wrote “the Teaching Crisis” with capital letters and a definite article as though it were the Banking Crisis or the Abdication Crisis. It isn’t but it should be.”
Tim Paramour was Deputy Head of a large primary school when he walked away from the profession that had been his life for over twelve years. A year on Tim shares his story in a poignant and unexpected way with documentary theatre experts, Kinoteater, from Estonia.
Ages 11+ • 1 hour“I cannot think of a more poignant and needed play to be touring the country right now”“I really love Mr Paramour – he’s engaging, enthusiastic and kind of flawed making him really compelling”“Excellent – the next Michael Moore”“Extremely engaging, dramatically inventive and well acted. Also politically very necessary.”“Hit the nail on the head. Spot on.”
