About CLASS

UK Premiere
Iseult Golden and David Horan in association with Abbey Theatre

A parent-teacher meeting goes very wrong in CLASS – a new play about learning difficulties: in school, in life, wherever.

Brian and Donna’s son is nine years old and he’s struggling. That’s what his teacher says. Says he should see a psychologist. But Brian and Donna – recently separated – never liked school, never liked teachers.

An explosive triple confrontation that is funny, heartbreaking and beautifully observed. With rave reviews and a sold-out run at the Abbey Theatre, CLASS is new Irish writing at its finest.
