    In Educating Rita, Rita, a brash, young hairdresser with a free spirit, is hungry to improve her lot in life. When she enrolls at the local university, she discovers a passion for literature and turns her boozy and burnt-out professor's life upside down in this award-winning comedy by Willy Russell (SHIRLEY VALENTINE, BLOOD BROTHERS).

    "A truly great play! Willy Russell is a writer of genuine nobility of spirit, with a rare gift for empathy, observation, and sheer humanity." — London Telegraph

    “Re-discovering Educating Rita was a delight. I found the play as intelligent, surprising, and funny as ever — its warmth and sense of self-discovery radiates. In a city celebrated for its centers of learning, I expect the play to pop with particular meaning.” — Peter DuBois
