Past imperfect. Present tense. 


FUTURE CONDITIONAL tackles the conundrum of British schooling through a myriad of characters including parents, teachers, and Alia, a prodigiously bright young Pakistani refugee and the newest member of the Education Commission. There are big questions to answer: how do we make the system fair? Do we even want to try? And is anyone ready to take lessons from a schoolgirl…?


Written by acclaimed playwright Tamsin Oglesby (THE MOUSE AND HIS CHILD; REALLY OLD, LIKE 45), FUTURE CONDITIONAL proves that when it comes to education, we’ve all got a lot to learn.
