Rowan Atkinson in Quartermaine’s Terms at Wyndham’s Theatre

Quartermaine’s Terms is a play by Simon Gray which won The Cheltenham Prize in 1982.

Set in the 1960s in an English language school for foreigners, this tragicomic play is a humourous but ultimately moving account of several years in the lives of seven teachers.

At the heart of the group is St. John Quartermaine (Rowan Atkinson) – kind, pleasant and agreeable, but utterly hopeless as a teacher. An almost permanent feature in the staff room, he’s always available to listen to the problems of his self-obsessed colleagues. But when a new Principal is appointed, Quartermaine’s future looks precarious…

This quintessentially British drama is written by Simon Gray with his characteristic sparkling wit.
