The Cane Tickets

Royal Court Jerwood Downstairs, London, SW1W 8AS
  • Royal Court Artistic Director Vicky Featherstone directs The Cane - a new gripping play by Mark Ravenhill. 

    "It will be the biggest send off any teacher has ever had. No teacher is as loved”

    After 45 years as a dedicated teacher, Edward is looking forward to the imminent celebration to mark his retirement.

    But his home is under siege. A mob of angry students have gathered. A brick has been thrown through the window, he and his wife haven’t left the house for six days, and now his estranged daughter has arrived with her own questions.

    “Why would they attack the most popular teacher in the school?”

    Mark Ravenhill’s previous work for the Royal Court includes Over There, Shoot/Get Treasure/Repeat and Shopping and Fucking.
