A comedy by Willy Russell//UK/1980
Directed by Adey Ramsel

Rita is a brash, earthy hairdresser hungry to find some meaning to life and to learn “everything”.

Frank is a disillusioned English tutor whose outlook on life drives him to the bottle.

In this wonderfully witty story, Rita – with Frank as her tutor – embarks on an Open University course and her education begins, much to the dismay of her husband Denny.

Rita's unschooled reaction is a breath of fresh air in Frank’s life, and there’s loads of humour in the unlikely meeting of minds as she attempts to appreciate the classics of English literature.

While she gets to grips with the problems of a formal education, Frank also learns something – to believe in himself again.

SEASON: June 21 – July 12, 8.00pm.
MATINEES: Sunday, June 22 and 29, 6.00pm.
