Educating Rita

  • Show Information

By Willy Russell

When married hairdresser Rita enrols on a university course to expand her horizons, little does she realise where the journey will take her.

Her tutor Frank is a frustrated poet, brilliant academic and borderline alcoholic, who’s less than enthusiastic about taking Rita on, but the two soon realise how much they have to teach each other.

Moving and hilarious, this heart-warming comedy of self-discovery asks what it takes to change your life.

Russell’s critically acclaimed show stars award winning film and television actor Stephen Tompkinson as Frank and introducing Jessica Johnson as Rita.
