SUMMARY

Forget Made in Chelsea - Perfectly Public is the show that will give you a real insight into the kind of people who go to public school; and what people who didn’t think of them. Presented in the style of a mock documentary (with songs!) Perfectly Public asks the question, “The public school system – does it produce over-privileged, pretentious ego-maniacs who think the world owes them a living or just suitable candidates for government?”

Perfectly Public, premiering at this year’s Fringe, explores the myths and realities of that great British institution – the public school. The fictional documentary company, Back Door Productions are working on a piece exposing the truth about private education; run by Max, an ex-grammar-school boy with a chip on his shoulder and a definite agenda. He’s surrounded by people with a private education and he’s encouraging them to make their schools and their ‘type’ look ridiculous. Perfectly Public explodes some myths and reinforces others – probably because there’s an element of truth in them! Original songs, a few shameless stereotypes, but also some real insights along the way.

Back Door Productions consists of six performers who all attend, or have attended, public schools (and several have been to state schools as well). They feel they have something to say and some entertaining/enlightening experiences to share! The company includes veterans of the Fringe and this is the director’s fourth year in Edinburgh. Some past reviews of her shows: “A well-directed, well-acted production” (Three Weeks 2008) “Simply gorgeous choreography, a joy to watch” (Broadway Baby 2009) “Inventively directed by Julia Crossley, this was powerful theatre!” (Newbury Weekly News 2010)
