- Quartermaine's Terms
"Set in the 1960's in an English language school for foreigners, this tragicomic play is a humorous but ultimately moving account of several years in the lives of seven teachers.
At the heart of the group is St. John Quartermaine - kind, pleasant and agreeable, but utterly hopeless as a teacher. An almost permanent feature in the staff room, he's always available to listen to the problems of his self-obsessed colleagues.
But when a new Principal is appointed, Quartermaine's future looks precarious.
This quintessentially British drama is written by Simon Gray with his characteristic sparkling wit."
For the 2013 West End run, Rowan Atkinson will star as St. John Quartermaine, directed by Richard Eyre, designed by Tim Hatley.
