The English Teacher

Refuse to live life by the book.


The English Teacher
A 40-year-old unmarried high school English teacher in a small town in the USA has her simple life turn an unexpected page when a former student returns home after trying to make it as a playwright in New York. On the verge of abandoning art and pressured by his father to face reality and go to law school, she decides to mount his play as a high school production, with a flamboyant drama teacher doing the directing. Now well out of her comfort zone, she takes further risks in life and love, and the stage is set for a highly comic downfall. With the play, her reputation, and her teaching career on the line, she finds an unlikely ally in herself.
