An ambitious small-town hairdresser is determined to better herself by gaining a higher education. An alcohol-dependent university lecturer has lost his passion for teaching and life in general. When the two meet, their worlds collide.

Educating Rita is one of Willy Russell’s best-known plays, drawing on every emotion to produce a profoundly moving, yet also hilarious two-hander.

“Warmly written…It is the interchange of feeling and realization of new approaches to life on both sides that make this play of particular interest.” – London Telegraph
