The film of this came out in December 1995. I left school in September 95 and got my GCSEs in 93. The thing is I am dead set certain that Dr Liddle showed us this on video when we were doing GCSE English. Now, I know that the film is based on a stage production, and that sometimes films of stage productions are made available for use in schools - does anyone know if that happened with this? Because there are two other explanations:

1, I've gone nuts
2, Dr Liddle is/was/will be a time traveller

ETA: googling for my old English teacher's name turns up no English teacher, but a professor of theoretical astrophysics who looks sort of a bit like Doctor Liddle but many years younger. God DAMN him, he IS a time traveller!

That's irrefutable evidence, that is.

Well, there's this, which indicates that the 1992 production was filmed for schools; and it was indeed the basis of the film.

I remember my shock at seeing a uni colleague popping up in it as Richmond - last time I'd seen him, he was trying to persuade me to make the masks for his planned production of Dante's Inferno: The Disco Version. (You can guess the tag line on the posters.)

It doesn't mean Dr Liddle wasn't a time traveller, though! Maybe you did see the film and he snuck back to 1992 to film the NT production then stashed it in an archive because he just realised you'd twigged his secret!
