High School is a large Comprehensive somewhere in England.
It is in a 'Special Priority Area', which means that it
has got it's fair share of problems.
School leavers, Salty, Gail and Hobby are amongst a large number of no-hopers and see no future for themselves when they have left school. Then, a new, young drama teacher arrives and takes them under his wing. When he persuades them to put on an end-of-term play about school life they show unexpected talent. Their play is a great success, but will they be able to build on this experience in their future life?
John Godber: "Teechers is a comedy which illustrates many anxieties in education today. Comedies must primarily be funny; here is a comedy, I think, which is also serious".
