Educating Rita

Luciole International Theatre Co - Educating RIta

Laurence Olivier Award-winning comedy Educating Rita takes a poignant, deeply moving, and yet hilarious look at an intrepid twenty-six-year old hairdresser's quest for inner growth, culture, and education. As she enrolls for an open-university course taught by disillusioned Professor Frank, who is battling his own demons, they are both forced to confront their own class assumptions. The play is a complex investigation of class and education. What does it take to pursue a dream? Could such a quest alienate your community and your own history? What do you have to sacrifice? Is it worth it? 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.Read more
