Quartermaine's Terms

Set in the 1960’s, Simon Gray’s quintessentially British drama is a sparklingly witty but ultimately moving account of several years in the lives of seven teachers at a small school in Cambridge which teaches English to foreigners. 

Never has the celebrated author been more amusing and more touching than in this thoroughly delightful portrait of a mediocre but lovable English schoolteacher St. John Quartermaine and his fellow faculty members.

Lighted Fools Theatre Company makes its sixth visit to the Mill Studio following successful productions of Arthur Miller’s The Price, Ariel Dorfman’s Death and the Maiden, Tim Firth’s Neville’s Island, Alan Bennett’s The Old Country and Jim Cartwright’s Two.


“Though the jokes are excellent, the piece cuts deep” THE DAILY TELEGRAPH

“The comedy is beautifully stated and even personal tragedies are underlined with running gags that ring with truthfulness” THE TIMES

By Simon Gray

Directed by David Hemsley-Brown

With Caroline Dooley, Polly King, Nick Lund, Paul Halliwell, Richard Parish, Derek Watts and David Webb
