That's why they come to the hairdressers - because they want to be changed. But if you wanna change y' have to do it from the inside, don't y?

Rita is unhappy with her job and the low expectations of those around her. She wants to know 'everything', and so embarks on an Open University course in English literature. Her life is about to change forever. Frank, her tutor, is a failed poet whose cynicism has led him to take solace in the bottle. Meeting Rita, his life too is about to change forever.

Thought provoking, funny and moving, Educating Rita is a comic masterpiece and a modern stage classic.

Educating Rita became a BAFTA award winning film starring Michael Caine and Julie Walters.

Liverpudlian Willy Russell is one of our most successful dramatists. His plays include Stags and Hens, Shirley Valentine and the hit musical Blood Brothers.

Emma Lucia directs Educating Rita following her recent hit productions at Clwyd Theatr Cymru, including A Doll’s House by Henrik Ibsen and God of Carnage by Yasmina Reza.

“A marvellous play, painfully funny, it sent me out moved, excited and exhilarated” The Sunday Times
