High School High

Synopsis
Feature film. A satire on the ‘inspirational’ teacher in high schools. Richard Clark wants to prove to his father, a headmaster, that he can be an inspirational teacher and secures a post at Marion Barry High where he makes reforms while wooing a fellow teacher. Clark’s reforms extend to the local stripclub where, in a brief scene, a stripper performs (badly) lines from Lady Macbeth’s ‘out, out damned spot’ speech in the club’s production of Macbeth.
