Our Teacher's a Troll Summary

Our Teacher's a Troll by Dennis Kelly

Once there were two terrible twins called Holly and Sean, who gave their Head Teacher a nervous breakdown. The twins were extremely pleased with themselves. That is, until the new Head Teacher arrived. For you see, the new Head Teacher was - a Troll. That's right.


And this Troll Head Teacher soon created all kinds of mad new rules for the pupils and teachers. Can Holly and Sean save the day and stop the Troll from eating their classmates and teachers? Can naughtiness be restored to its rightful place? Will Brussels sprouts and peanut butter be taken off the menu?

Our Teacher's a Troll Reviews

A celebration of naughtiness and questioning, it's a raucous, skin-crawling treat. * Guardian *
Dennis Kelly does it again. Not content with unsettling us adults with his dark TV show 'Utopia', he's decided to redress the balance and see how much the kids can take... You never actually see the troll but Kelly's vivid, gruesome descriptions make it feel as if it's right there in the room with us. * Time Out *
Our Teacher's a Troll - has all of the wit, grotesque humour and naughtiness of Dahl's best, not to mention some resourceful kids and vile, useless adults. * What's On Stage *
[The solution] is a far superior moral twist, one that mocks self-aggrandising authority and finds the value of understanding an alien culture - while giving the production space for pure adrenaline fun all the way. * Stage *
Dennis Kelly has delighted children of all ages with his book for Matilda the Musical. Our Teacher's a Troll is written in the same spirit and will provoke just as much enthusiasm, * British Theatre Guide *
