Brand new drama from John Cooper - The Education of a Lapdancer - this fast-moving, raw, and humorous play cuts through the spin and the platitudes and looks at the increasingly complex cultural mix that is London today



Living in the fashionable London suburb of Little Venice, Chris Moore  is a  teacher at a `socially challenged` inner-city  school , and his wife, Marie, is a  doctor at a busy London NHS hospital.  

They seem to be doing OK, but when Chris gets involved with a Romanian lap-dancer, things get dangerously complicated.


John Cooper’s play examines the growing ethnic diversity of contemporary London

and looks at values and morals in a rapidly changing urban culture. Under the spotlight

is the pressure on those at the frontline of public sector health and education, trying to

cope with ever- increasing numbers due to burgeoning immigration.


The play also deals with the erotic and sensual undertow in multi-cultural London, where,

sex, as ever, is a powerful and irresistible driving force.  So when Chris’s daughter drops out of college,

and brings home Billy, a street-wise black musician, tensions between father and daughter escalate.


This is the London at the sharp end . . at the cutting.edge . .
