    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.

    Winner of the Writers Guild of Ireland Zebbies Award for Best Theatre Script
