Quatermaine’s Terms, from January 2013 at Theatre Royal Brighton

Set in the 1960s in an English language school for foreigners, this tragicomic play is a humorous but ultimately moving account of several years in the lives of seven teachers.

At the heart of the group is St John Quartermaine (Rowan Atkinson); kind pleasant and agreeable, but utterly hopeless as a teacher. An almost permanent feature in the staff room, he’s always available to listen to the problems of his self-obsessed colleagues. But when a new Pricipal is appointed, Quartermaine’s future looks precarious.

This quintessential British drama is written by Simon Gray with his characteristic sparkling wit.

Quatermaine’s Terms will be Rowan Atkinson’s first appearance in a play for almost 25 years – definitely not to be missed!
