EDUCATING RITA

EDUCATING RITA, by Willy Russell

Frank is a tutor of English in his fifties whose disillusioned outlook on life drives him to drink and to bury himself in his books. Enter Rita, a forthright 26 year-old hairdresser who is eager to learn. The play became a hit film with Michael Caine and Julie Walters.

“Warmly written…It is the interchange of feeling and realization of new approaches to life on both sides that make this play of particular interest.” – London Telegraph

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