Educating Rita at
Following a hugely successful run in 2010 both at the Menier Chocolate Factory and in the West End, Educating Rita will play at the Chocolate Factory for 3 weeks only, prior to a UK tour. Matthew Kelly and Claire Sweeney star in Willy Russell's modern classic, directed by Tamara Harvey.
Rita, a young, brash hairdresser, has recently discovered a passion for English literature and enrols with the Open University. Her fresh, unschooled reaction to the classics challenges the attitudes of the University and her lecturer Frank who begins to question his own understanding of his work and himself.
