Synopsis

There must be more to life that this! For 26-year-old Rita, cutting hair all day is just not ‘cutting it’ anymore! And while a good night in the pub is enough for her friends and her husband, it’s not nearly enough for Rita. The answer, she decides, is to get an education, so she enrols in an Open University course to see if the giants of English Literature can guide her to a better way of life. But her tutor Frank has spent his life immersed in the classroom, and would now much prefer to be in the pub himself.

As the classes progress, and their friendship deepens, what they learn from each other will surprise them both. Willy Russell’s tender comedy about education, love, and the joy of self-discovery, has charmed audiences for years, and is sure to work its magic again at Malvern.
