Our Teacher’s A Troll

Wed 11 Feb 2015

Two terrible twins rule their school with terror and tyranny until the arrival of a new headteacher with green scaly skin, gnarly fangs and a long spiky tail. Can the twins save the school from this child-eating troll? Can they get Brussels sprouts in peanut butter taken off the menu? And most importantly, will naughtiness prevail? An outrageously entertaining comic caper from the writer of Matilda The Musical.

Roundabout at Regency Square

Paines Plough is the national theatre of new plays. Its Roundabout auditorium is a beautiful pop-up, in-the-round theatre which pitches up in Regency Square for the duration of Brighton Festival 2015. A self-contained 168-seat circular auditorium that flat packs into a lorry, Roundabout has travelled around the UK bringing the nation’s best playwrights to people’s doorsteps.

Our Teacher's A Troll, Lungs and The Initiate are performed 'in rep' by an exceptional cast and Every Brilliant Thing features Jonny Donahoe.
