Riz Ahmed plays a young primary school teacher sinking under the pressure of work and struggling to keep his emotions in check in How Are You, one of the winners of the 2008 Staffroom Monologues competition.
This moving play is introduced by competition judge Ashley Pharoah, and features an interview with writer Laura Owen, who explains why she wrote about a young male teacher in a primary school.
Staffroom Monologues is a series of five short plays based on winning scripts from the 2008 competition run by SchoolsWorld, in association with the National Union of Teachers. Now in its second year, the series offers an alternate view of life in an educational environment, written by those who work within it.
