Pygmalion meets Educating Rita ...

A retired English literature teacher, down on his luck, is depressed, drunk and broke

He meets a newly-arrived young Vietnamese woman with a tragic back-story who speaks no English

He teaches her English via Shakespeare - meaning she becomes fluent in Elizabethan English

With the teacher's miserable mother boosting his depression, the Bard - with a little help from Groucho Marx - intervenes to bring love and hope for all


" An absolutely charming, funny and thoughtful piece that really makes you feel a lot better after seeing it. The play is fresh and new and of today. It's bubbling with some very funny one-liners and has some rather poignant moments. It's one of the most delightful plays I have seen in a long time; a damn good night at the theatre. Highly recommended" ~ John Gunn Curtain Up

"A delightful play, beautifully written-an unusual and moving love-story with Shakespeare as matchmaker. Don't miss it. Cenarth Fox's plays are exceptional" ~ Eastern FM 98.1

"A delightful and touching piece of theatre" ~ Bell Shakespeare

"An exceptional piece of theatre which makes you laugh and cry. There is wonderful use of language, humour and pathos throughout the play. 5 stars" ~ Joan Amos
