Sad single teachers get together. Drink tequila, get very pissed and reveal secrets and then stagger home at four in the morning, with some dim light in your brain saying "Shit. Year seven first lesson."'



David Eldridge's Under the Blue Sky premiered at the Royal Court Jerwood Theatre Upstairs, London, in September 2000.

Methuen's Royal Court Writers Series was launched in 1981 to celebrate 25 years of the English Stage Company and 21 years since the publication of the first Methuen Modern Play. Published to coincide with specific productions in the Jerwood Theatre Downstairs and the Jerwood Theatre Upstairs, the series fulfils the dual role of programme and playscript.

Review: Under The Blue Sky

User Review  - Sam Pryce - Goodreads

Consistently gripping, at times shocking and moving triptych play that had me completely hooked. Plenty of potential to be very funny on stage and, without wanting to spoil it, there's a wonderfully happy ending. Read full review

Review: Under The Blue Sky

User Review  - Kelly - Goodreads

Really good, short play about single British teachers. The troubles they faced on the job intrigued me, but I loved the character development and interaction. The plot was cleverly connected through three acts involving entirely different characters. Read full review
