Just a note[edit]

Some of these scenes are in the play retold by the actors and some of them are not there at all. Scene three in act two begins with Frank cursing "Sod them-no *censored* them! Fuck them, eh, Rita? Neither Rita or the audience have the first clue as to what he is referring to. As the dialogue progresses they audience is informed that he is upset because the students reported him since he had been very drunk while giving his last lecture. The audience never get to see the actual scene where this happens. They never witness Frank staggering and slurring in front of the class.

It's been a while, but isn't the scene of people cycling in France actually UCD? Autarch 18:37, 24 March 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I suppose the above comment refers to the film rather than the stage play. <KF> 11:50, 10 July 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Minor Question[edit]

Is there any established relation between this Rita and the "lovely Rita, meter-maid" of The Beatles?--Awaler (talk) 18:31, 6 July 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Calling "Rita" a GIRL?[edit]

What's with this business of calling "Rita" a girl; I thought feminism ended junk such as this quite some time ago!

She's over 21 and she's married; that makes her a WOMAN.

Sheesh; certain prejudices, even in such a potentially politically-correct charged world as "Wikipedia" sure can take a long time to die!

Based on a book?[edit]

This article is in Category:Plays based on books, but nothing in the article indicates that the play was based on a book. Is there important information missing from the article, or is this category incorrect? --RL0919 (talk) 21:36, 3 September 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
