Viennas English Theatre

Educating Rita

Famously made into an award-winning film starring Michael Caine and Julie Walters, Willy Russell’s hilarious and heart-warming comedy won the Olivier Award for Best Comedy in 1980. His intimate play tells a story of big ideas through his irresistible, beautiful drawn protagonists.

Rita, a young working-class hairdresser, decides to pursue her hunger for education and enrols on an Open University course in English Literature. Full of excitement and anticipation to finally be able to expand her horizons, she bursts into the life of her tutor Frank, a brilliant but disillusioned academic, frustrated poet and committed drinker. It doesn’t take long for the exuberant student to win over the cynic professor with her unorthodox literary insight and her refusal to take no for an answer. Their Pygmalion-inspired journey leads both onto an unexpected path of inner growth and friendship.
