care takersTruant Company are touring Billy Cowan’s play Care Takers this year. Aurora Metro are publishing the playtext.
Ms 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 Mrs Rutter speaking from experience or is there something more unsavoury about her uncaring attitude?
The play deals with homophobia in the staffroom of a secondary school, and is an excellent teachers’ training resource. Care Takers by Billy Cowan - TruantCompany
