David Burton’s The Final Days of Bedlam is written specifically for Grade 7–10 and designed for classrooms to reflect on the purpose of education and learning in classroom environments.
Bedlam High is about to be closed and a group of students contemplate what this means for them: Do they even want to go to school? Should they start their own school? What do they want to learn? What will the world be like without school? The only thing that’s certain is these last few days are complete bedlam.
The Final Days of Bedlam was first produced by La Boite Theatre Company premiering at The Roundhouse Theatre on August 16, 2019.
