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

Bootycandy

By Robert O'Hara, Directed by Vance Johnson

Robert O’Hara’s semi-autobiographical and wildly subversive comedy tells the story of Sutter, a young gay black man on an outrageous odyssey through his childhood home, his church, dive bars, motel rooms, and his grandmother’s nursing home. At times poignant, shocking, hilarious, and wise, BOOTYCANDY is a kaleidoscope of scenes, sermons, sketches, and daring meta-theatrics.
