Educating Rita

Passed

This event has been and gone.

We are very excited to be back this October with the critically acclaimed Educating Rita!

To keep you safe and socially distanced, we only have a limited number of seats available so we strongly advise to book your seats early to avoid disappointment.

When married hairdresser Rita enrols on a university course to expand her horizons, little does she realise where the journey will take her.

Her tutor Frank is a frustrated poet, brilliant academic and dedicated drinker, who's less than enthusiastic about taking Rita on, but the two soon realise how much they have to teach each other.

This hilarious and heart-warming comedy won the Olivier award when it was produced in London's West End by the RSC and was adapted into the multi award winning film which starred Julie Walters and Michael Caine.

Written by Willy Russell, one of our greatest playwrights, and starring one of our best loved actors Stephen Tompkinson as Frank and introducing Jessica Johnson as Rita.
