Educating Rita happens at the Jewel Box Theatre from February 18 - 27 on Friday & Saturday nights at 7:30 p.m. with a Sunday Matinee at 2 p.m.
Frank is a tutor of English in his fifties whose disillusioned outlook on life drives him to drink and bury himself in his books. Enter Rita, a forthright 26 year-old hairdresser who is eager to learn. After weeks of cajoling, their relationship as teacher and student blossoms. The play became a hit film with Michael Caine and Julie Walters.
