An award-winning new play that's both deeply personal and ripped-from-the-headlines
Paul is the new teacher on staff, and he’s expected to play by the rules – he’s signed the Code of Conduct after all. But everyone at the school has their own way of playing the game, including a student questioning their identity, and another teacher who keeps his cards close to his chest. When boundaries in and out of the classroom are crossed, relationships and identities within the school are set to explode, leaving it one wrong move away from making the papers. ‘Code of Conduct’ is a bold and thrilling new play that doesn’t shy away from asking the big questions about workplace discrimination, queer solidarity and intergenerational responsibility. In this fresh new work, Rory Godbold continues his political engagement by lighting a match to the intersection of education, identity and politics. Visionary director Mark Wilson brings his bold, immediate and arresting style to the production.
