Synopsis

Educating Rita by Willy Russell, Andrew Bennett, Jim Taylor, John Shuttleworth

Hairdresser Rita feels that life is passing her by. She wants an education. But does Frank have anything to teach her? Willy Russell's play gives a hilarious - and often moving - account of a young woman's determination to change her life.

Reviews

A simply marvelous play, painfully funny and passionately serious; a hilarious social documentary; a fairy-tale with a quizzical, half-happy ending. - Sunday Times of London
