A new play written by Simon Gray with his characteristic sparkling wit, is due to preview at Wyndhams Theatre, London on 23rd January 2013. Quartermaine’s Terms will star Rowan Atkinson as St. John Quartermaine, at the heart of a group of seven teachers.
The play is set in the 1960s in an English language school teaching foreigners. It is a tragicomic, humourous & moving account of several years in the lives of 7 teachers.

We will let you know when we have tickets available for this new play.
