Neil Bartlett, Stuart Marshall
The theatre producer, performance artist and writer Neil Bartlett delivers a monologue to the camera as it surveys his personal effects; a black leather jacket, blue jeans, a plastic briefcase‚Ä¶ Bartlett‚Äôs students describe their experiences of his teaching. Hysterically funny and incisive, Pedagogue is an indictment of the Tory government‚Äôs notorious and reactionary Clause 28 policy, which outlawed the ‚Äòpromotion of homosexuality‚Äô in education and local government.
Neil Bartlett is one of Britain's most renowned and innovative theatre artists. He is a director, performer, translator, and writer. www.neil-bartlett.com
