“A real cracker...The debates will be familiar to many of us. But Oglesby has given them new life in a fast and furious play that crackles with intellectual energy.” —Guardian
“It's lively, disputatious, and full of clued-up, irreverent humor.” —Independent
Future Conditional tackles the nightmare of British schooling through a myriad of characters including parents, teachers, and Alia, a prodigiously clever fourteen-year-old Afghan refugee and the newest member of Britain’s Education Research Board. Alia has a radical solution for Britain’s schools that could restore our place in the world education league. But is the system ready to take lessons from a schoolgirl…?
Tamsin Oglesby's plays include Only the Lonely (Birmingham Repertory Theatre), Us and Them, My Best Friend (Hampstead Theatre), and Two Lips Indifferent Red (Bush Theatre).
