Following a hugely successful run in 2010 both at the Menier Chocolate Factory and in the West End, Educating Rita will play at the Chocolate Factory for 3 weeks only, prior to a UK tour. Matthew Kelly and Claire Sweeney star in Willy Russell's modern classic, directed by Tamara Harvey.
Rita, a young, brash hairdresser, has recently discovered a passion for English literature and enrols with the Open University. Her fresh, unschooled reaction to the classics challenges the attitudes of the University and her lecturer Frank who begins to question his own understanding of his work and himself.
Originally commissioned by the RSC, the show won the 1980 Society of West End Theatres award for Best Comedy and Best Play. Since this time, Educating Rita has never been out of production somewhere in the world. The film version which starred Julie Walters and Michael Caine was Oscar-nominated and won three BAFTA awards.
