Educating Rita

by Willy Russell

18 - 28 June 1997




Frank is a tutor of English whose disillusioned outlook on life drive him to the bottle. Rita is a hairdresser hungry to find some meaning to life. With Frank as her tutor Rita embarks on an open university course and her education process begins. The effects are both amusing and serious as her fresh, intuitive approach becomes clouded and stifled as she grapples with the problem of a formal education, while Frank also learns something - to believe in himself again.
