The School Inspection


Stephen Hirst

Published by SchoolPlay Productions

Large Mixed Cast
The initial visit of a marketing-trained "business executive" School Inspector leads the staff to claim allegiance to a new "politically correct" set of values in order to bluff their way through. Soon after the inspection is complete, however, developments suggest that empty teacher rhetoric has become reality! Satire moves to farce as this witty and pertinent play comes to its chaotic finale with the whole cast on stage as wave after wave of enterprising free-market groups of pupils invade the staff room.

Cast : 45 - 60 (12 "staff" speaking parts; remainder pupils; most variable m/f ) Suggested Age Range : 12 upwards - best with older (say 15+) as "staff". Running Time : 45 minutes - Set : A school staff room.
