Educating Rita


This amateur production of the original play and film by Willy Russell is presented by Wigan Autistic Theatre Company.

Set in a Northern Town in the 1980’s, Frank is an English Tutor whose disillusioned outlook on life drives him to drink and burying himself in books. Enter Rita, a forthright 29-year-old hairdresser who is eager to learn. After weeks of cajoling, Rita slowly wins over the very hesitant Frank with her innate insight and refusal to accept no for an answer. Their relationship as teacher and student blossoms, ultimately giving Frank a new sense of self and Rita the knowledge she so craves.
