State Theatre Company South Australia and Sydney Theatre Company presents
Chalkface

3 Nov 2022 to 5 Nov 2022

by Angela Betzien
Directed by Jessica Arthur

What happens in the staff room, stays in the staff room.

Played by the fantastic Catherine McClements, Pat is a jaded, stalwart primary school teacher who isn’t afraid to voice her opinions: all kids are terrors, the school’s a zoo and her colleagues are nitwits. Enter Anna, played by Stephanie Somerville in her STC mainstage debut, who is bright-eyed, idealistic and just out of university. Anna’s going to change the world, one gold star at a time.

As you might suspect, these two don’t quite see eye to eye.

In a hilarious new black comedy from the brilliant mind of Angela Betzien (The Hanging, ABC’s Total Control), audiences will get a sneak peek into one of society’s biggest mysteries: the teachers’ staff room.

STC Resident Director Jessica Arthur (Grand Horizons, Home, I’m Darling) leads the cast, also featuring Ezra Juanta, Michelle Ny and Nathan O’Keefe. This premiere production will be a laugh-a-minute tribute to one of our noblest and most underappreciated professions and an irreverent jab at privatisation, bureaucracy and workplace culture.

A mashup of The Office and Teachers, Chalkface is the rowdy tale of two teachers who must put their differences aside to stand up for what’s right – even if it means throwing out the rule book altogether.
