When married hairdresser Rita enrolls on a university course to expand her horizons, little does she realize where the journey will take her. Her tutor Frank is a frustrated poet, brilliant academic and dedicated drinker, who’s less than enthusiastic about taking Rita on, but the two soon realize how much they have to teach each other.
This hilarious and heart-warming comedy won the Olivier award when it was produced in London’s West End by the RSC and was adapted into the multi award winning film which starred Julie Walters and Michael Caine.
“A poignant, deeply moving, and yet hilarious look at one woman’s quest for inner growth, culture, and education!”
–The Houston Chronicle
