ABOUT Phil Church

Phil Church
I am a first time writer and English teacher living in Cambridge, England.



A failing secondary school. A selection of confused teenagers. A play doomed for disaster. A distinctly below average teacher.

Being a successful teacher is difficult, especially when you are not overly keen on doing any actual work.

Still, the narrator of Thrift is undeterred as he lies and cheats his way through the Christmas term, hoping that he can save his career, and perhaps even earn himself a thoroughly undeserved promotion.
