RECOGNITION / AWARDS

From Broadway, From West End

Oscar-winner Glenda Jackson starred in this perceptive comedy both in London and on Broadway, where she captivated audiences and critics alike. Rose is an English elementary school teacher who is dissatisfied with her life, both at home and at work. At the school she must contend with silly narrow mindedness and at home she must contend with a husband who appears bored both with marriage and with her. Eventually Rose has a fling with a free spirited fellow teacher, and decides to divorce her husband. In a highly charged scene of great emotional depth, he forces her to confront the consequences of her ennui; and to wonder if, just maybe, some of her disenchantment with life is her own fault.
