A young inexperienced teacher takes the big step from a small art school to a huge institution for young adults. We meet the uptight, strict teacher who sees the school as a factory and the mellow, seen-it-all-before type, who’s just holding out for retirement. In the melting pot of this environment, a modern teacher is created.
A harsh satire based on the Author’s own experience as a teacher — coming out in Autumn 2023.
