Ofsted! fails taste inspection

9th July 2004 at 01:00
And where better to start than Hull university, where students are rehearsing a show more tasteless than Springtime for Hitler, more terrifying than Jerry Springer. Here comes Ofsted! The Musical.

Chris Woodhead has already booked his seat for the Edinburgh fringe show, which was inspired by writer David Byrne's observations of teachers during inspection week.

David's only worry is that reports from a Hull school's manoeuvres to outwit inspectors may trump anything he has come up with. Ofsted! runs at Venue 45 from August 9.
