The National Conference of Drama Teachers has today issued a statement reluctantly accepting the widely-held view that Drama is a bit rubbish.
In a melodramatic press conference a spokesman conceded ‘We have finally agreed to stop leaping to the defence of Drama. We accept now that all the well-intentioned justifications of creative maturity, team-building and developing the individual’s confidence were delusional, and admit that kids just prefer running around, pretending and dressing up to proper subjects like Maths and Science.’
Dorothy Jensen, head of Drama at Lancaster Grammar School added ‘I took Drama at GCSE and all I’ve got to show for it is a frustrating career as a drama teacher. I wish I’d done Business Studies instead.’
