Rita is a working-class hairdresser who wants to learn. Frank is a failed poet and professor who wants to drink.

When they are thrown together, they embark on a journey that neither expected. The story is loosely based on George Bernard Shaw's play Pygmalion , which became the heart of My Fair Lady and the film Pretty Woman .

This funny and touching play reveals the unlikely connections that can sur­prise and change us.
