Hilarious and poignant comedy by Willy Russell

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. She is a forthright 26 year old hairdresser who is hungry for education. She quickly wins over the very reticent teacher by her native shrewdness and her refusal to accept secondhand academic opinions.

In the course of the play Rita gives Frank a new lease on life by making him believe in himself once again.

This show is presented on our studio stage.  The studio is created by re-setting our Main Hall to offer an intimate performance space.
