About this show

Educating Rita tells the story of a brash, young hairdresser from Liverpool, hungry to improve her lot in life by furthering her education. When the free-spirited Rita enrolls at the local university, she discovers a passion for literature, while at the same time, turning the life of Dr. Frank Bryant, her boozy and burnt-out professor, upside down. Chemistry radiates between these two polar opposites in this intelligent, funny, and surprising play where teacher and student learn invaluable life lessons through each others' experience.
