Biscuits and banter dominate in new comedy The Staff Room

A new comedy containing a very high level of biscuit consumption hits the Bellerby Studio, G Live as part of the Guildford Fringe Festival on Monday 24 July.

The Staff Room examines the life inside a state school staff room. Three teachers. One staff room. But what’s the subject?


Behind closes doors three teachers form an unlikely friendship. Bonding over fad diets, Instagram abs and the government’s impending sugar tax – in this school it’s not just the students who have lessons to learn. Sometimes all that matters are biscuits and banter.


Catch this witty new play at the Guildford Fringe Festival before it heads off to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August.

One for the Netflix generation, this is a sitcom for the stage speaking about society today through the eyes of its educators. It stars Craig Webb, who appeared on Gary Barlow’s Let It Shine (BBC) earlier this year, Faye Derham and Hilary Murnane.



The play is written and directed by Michelle Payne with Associate Director Anna Buckmaster.
