The Derby Theatre and Octagon Theatre Bolton production of Educating Rita continues at Derby Theatre until March 11.
An uplifting story of self-discovery through which we witness how the power of choice comes through education, Educating Rita is a much-loved play by Willy Russell.
Frank has almost given up completely. Given up on his ambition to be a poet and disillusioned with teaching undergraduate English students, he reflects melancholically on his life. That is, until Rita walks in. A 26 year old, married hairdresser, Rita has decided to take control of her life and earn herself an education.
With Rita’s tenacious honesty and Frank’s deep intellect, they inspire each other to wake up to life in their own way. A cast of two talented actors will bring this inspirational and humorous story to life.
Tickets are £9.50-£26.50. For more information and to book tickets call the box office on 01332 593939 or online at www.derbytheatre.co.uk
