Award-winning playwright Billy Cowan explores the issue of classroom bullying and how teachers deal with it.
Rachael Lawson, a new teacher at Newall South High School, believes Jamie Harrow is being bullied because he’s gay. She wants to help but Mrs Rutter, the Deputy Head, thinks it will sort itself out. Is the Deputy Head speaking from experience or is there something more unsavoury about her uncaring attitude?
A battle royale occurs between youthful idealism and the system that evolves to choke it.
