Synopsis


"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.
