About The Event
Laurence Olivier Award winner comedy Educating Rita takes a poignant, deeply moving, and yet hilarious look at an intrepid twenty-six-year old hairdresser quest for inner growth, culture, and education. As she enrolls for an open-university course taught by disillusioned Professor Frank who is battling demons, they both are forced to confront their own class assumptions. The play is a complex investigation of class and education. Through a delightful and inspired fusion of comedy and drama playwright Willy Russel attempts to answer these questions while celebrating the possibilities of education and transformation.
"A marvelous play, painfully funny and passionately serious; a hilarious social documentary; a fairy tale with a quizzical, half happy ending” – London Times
