Educating Rita

March 9 @ 00:00 - March 14 @ 00:00

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 dedicated drunk who’s less than enthusiastic about taking Rita on but when these two people come together they soon realise how much they have to teach each other.

This hilarious and heart-warming comedy won the Olivier Award when it was first produced by the RSC and was adapted into the multi award-winning film which starred Julie Walters and Michael Caine.

Written by one of our greatest ever playwrights Willy Russell, Educating Rita stars one of our best loved actors Stephen Tompkinson as Frank and introduces Jessica Johnson as Rita. This production directed by Max Roberts of Live Theatre has garnered rave reviews.
