Who best understands what education is for? Philosophers? The government? Ofsted? Teachers?
Or maybe the students themselves…?
About the show
Faction follows the journeys of Pip, a sixth former from a privileged background, and Paris, a 15-year-old from the notorious local estate.
Their lifestyles may be worlds apart, but their lives are perhaps not as different as you might expect…
This play explores what it takes to provide real equality of opportunity, and the economic, social and personal costs when we fail to do so.
Damn Cheek performed Faction as a script-in-hand performance twice in 2017, as part of our funded ongoing research and development.
Thank you to students and staff at University of Gloucestershire for their invaluable input and support in the development of this project.
