Remember high school? Aaargh! Lockers, gym strip, cafeteria, clubs, classes  English, Math, Socials, Physics, Chem, French  and that door that said STAFF ROOM, where They roosted and plotted and decided on your marks?  And those teachers!  Well, some of them were okay, but some were downright peculiar.  And then sometimes there would be a student teacher, and if you were lucky, he or she would be young and pretty cool.

Everyone has been to school, but not everyone has been inside that Staff Room.  Written and directed by Barbara Ellison, Teachers is an original Canadian stage play about what goes on inside that Room, in this case, the small Social Studies book room which has become, over the years, a refuge and a cage for a group of Social Studies teachers.  There is Teresa (Terri Taylor), the mother hen and organizer; there is Fred (Robert L. Duncan) known as Red Fred Department Head; and there is Maggie (Sally Clark) who has been teaching since the middle ages and has not updated her practice, or so it seems to Robert (Xander Williams), a charismatic Englishman who, possibly justifiably, feels intellectually superior to his colleagues, and who interacts with his students  particularly the lovely Sonia (Stephanie Cho) -- very personally.

Into this dysfunctional ménage comes a student teacher: Jo (Leah Ringwald).  She is a bit older than student teachers tend to be, but she is bright and energetic and it doesnt take her long to suss out the dynamics that are souring this department on a daily basis.  She wants a job very badly; she has a monster student debt, but she has other personal reasons for needing to ace her practicum with flying colours.
How does Jo negotiate the snakepit  and what is the unforeseen and terrible cost of her intrusion into this moribund group of Teachers?
