Those Who Can’t, Teach is a Singaporean theatre classic by Cultural Medallion winners Alvin Tan and Haresh Sharma. This excerpt of Those Who Can’t, Teach centres around Teck Liang, a rebellious student and his classmates, Clare, Jali and Raymond, are caught drinking, smoking and making a ruckus. As a result, Teck Liang’s parents have to meet Mrs Phua, his teacher. An argument ensues between parents and child, and Jali, Teck Liang’s best friend, ends up embroiled in it as well.

How can Teck Liang make peace with his parents? Can his friendship with Jali weather this dispute?
