Written by Garry Marshall and Lowell Ganz (both acclaimed writers for tv sit-coms and movies), this great comedy-drama, with friendship and love as its themes, has played to critical and audience acclaim in several countries. It had its world premiere at the famous Steppenwolf Theatre in Chicago, and then transferred to the New York stage with George C Scott, Kelli Williams, Jami Gertz and Tony Danza in the cast.
It's the story of a recently-blind and bitter college professor and his encounter with a saucy, street-wise young woman who volunteers to read to him in hospital. He's frustrated at no longer being able to read his favourite classic authors and poets—she livens up proceedings by reading extracts from "A Hooker by Choice"!
It's a compassionate, human comedy of character with philosophical overtones and plenty of laughs.
The cast comprises Tony Busch, Lana Adamuszek, Alex Radda and Sanne Baltussen, with Rosie Aust directing.
Please note: there is some occasional strong language.
Cast: Martin Wright, Alex King
