Educating Rita

29 May - 1 June

Dawlish Repertory Company presents: “Educating Rita” by Willy Russell
Working-class hairdresser Rita enrols for an adult education course in literature at her local university, determined to expand her mind. She is assigned alcoholic lecturer Dr Frank Bryant, and as Rita’s horizons broaden she begins to feel stifled by her home life. Simultaneously, Frank’s academic career takes a turn for the worse as his drinking increases.
This hilarious comedy hits at the heart. The film, starring Michael Caine and Julie Walters, won the best film BAFTA in 1984 with Caine and Walters winning best actor and actress awards.
This amateur production of  Educating Rita is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd. On behalf of Samuel French Ltd.
