About Educating Rita

A hilarious and heart-warming comedy, Educating Rita won the Olivier Award when it was produced in London’s West End by the RSC and was adapted into the multi award-winning film which starred Julie Walters and Michael Caine.

It tells the story of Rita, a married hairdresser, who registers for a university course to expand her horizons... but she doesn't realise where the journey will take her.

A frustrated poet, her tutor Frank is brilliant academic and dedicated drunk who’s less than enthusiastic about taking Rita on but when these two people come together they soon realise how much they have to teach each other.

Written by acclaimed playwright Willy Russell, Educating Rita stars beloved actor Stephen Tompkinson as Frank and introduces Jessica Johnson as Rita.
