Edward Bond play's the thing;Letter

WHAT a pity a unique educational opportunity for a school should be given such cavalier treatment in your august publication (TES, August 13).

Under a cheap, insulting headline, Edward Bond's plays are travestied in a way that is outdated, ill-informed and sensationalised.

What other internationally-acclaimed playwright is writing for young people? It is a unique privilege for our pupils to work with Bond and Classworks theatre company. This was a disappointing response to an exceptional project that we would have expected The TES to celebrate.
