Educating Rita takes a poignant, deeply moving, and yet hilarious look at an intrepid twenty-six-year old hairdresser quest for inner growth, culture, and education. As she enrolls for an open-university course taught by disillusioned Professor Frank who is battling demons, they both are forced to confront their own class assumptions. The play is a complex investigation of class and education. Through a delightful and inspired fusion of comedy and drama, Educating Rita attempts to answer these questions while celebrating the possibilities of education and transformation.
