Minor Dramas and Other Catastrophes (2020)

 

The last thing Julia expects when she sneaks into her children’s high school to see if her son has made the musical cast list is that video footage of her will go viral. Meanwhile, her daughter’s favourite teacher, Isobel, is creating waves with her progressive American Literature lessons, and a secret Facebook page set up for parents is rife with rumours and mud-raking.
This entertaining debut shines a light on schoolground politics and tells the story from the viewpoints of numerous characters including the pushy stage mother, the dedicated teacher and the kids caught in the middle. It offers a wryly humorous take on power struggles, social media abuse and helicopter parenting. 7/10
