Educating Rita at the Mill at Sonning
Brash, straight-talking hairdresser Rita is determined to change her life. She wants to know ‘everything’ and she thinks the Open University might just be the answer.
World-weary, alcohol-fuelled lecturer Frank is a failed poet, a self-acknowledged ‘appalling teacher of appalling students’. In fact, he’s just about given up. In need of extra cash, he agrees to tutor Rita, totally unaware of the whirlwind that’s about to enter his world…
The unlikely pair form a life-changing bond as Rita starts to find herself, and Frank finds a whole new lease of life. Touching, life-affirming and very, very funny, Educating Rita is a comic masterpiece from one of our best-loved writers.
This multi award winning gem of British theatre is inspired by Willy Russell’s own experiences of returning to education, an intimate comedy with big ideas and an even bigger heart. Ticket prices vary but start from £41.00 (inclusive of Dinner, Programme and Show). Takes place at the Mill at Sonning, 22 January-21 March.
