Educating Rita

About This Show

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 drinker, who’s less than enthusiastic about taking Rita on, but the two soon realise how much they have to teach each other.

This hilarious and heart-warming comedy won the Olivier award when it was produced in London’s West End 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 and starring one of our best-loved television actors Stephen Tompkinson as Frank and introducing Jessica Johnson as Rita.
