What is the show?
Education, Education, Karaoke is the story of the last 20 years of the British education system and the pop bangers that came to define it. From Tony Blair to Cher Lloyd, we take a romp through how one speech in 1997 lead to the British education system becoming one of the most unequal in the world, and how karaoke might be the answer to level the playing field. A guest performer is confronted with a karaoke machine and a dance mat and has 90 minutes to get through it all, we track the way working-class kids were told to aspire to something the establishment never wanted them to have.
The first sharing will take place on July 4th as part of the Starting Blocks Showcase at CPT.
