A classic play, which underlines the principles of classes of classes. The protagonists in this two hander play are Rita is a stereotypical hair dresser who longs for change to become Middle Class and Frank who is a University Proffesor with PHD, yet also an alcoholic.

In order to start a better life, Rita decides to join the open university. For those of you who do not know in the 70's it was very rare for someone to go to university and only 5% of people went. Then the Open University was opened by the Prime Minister, meaning people could go to University for free, without any qualifications; this is what Rita did; she regards this as "Degrees for Dishwashers" throughout the play.

There are more twists and turns than a ballroom dancer in the play that really emphasizes one womans struggle to gain a better life and one mans struggle to get out of a life he has worked so hard to get to.

Nice review, though could do with a bit more info, maybe on her back ground or how many chapters there are in the book or how many pages.
