Educating Rita


Stephen Tompkinson and Jessica Johnson star in a new major stage production of Educating Rita.

The heart-warming multi-award winning drama will be performed at Theatre Royal Bath from tomorrow (Monday) to June 8.

The play follows the relationship between married hairdresser Rita who enrols into a university course to expand her horizons, and Frank, her tutor who is a frustrated poet and dedicated drinker, who is less than enthusiastic about taking on Rita.

The play is written Liverpudlian Willy Russell who is one of the most celebrated writers of his generation with works constantly in production across the globe.

Educating Rita will be at Theatre Royal Bath, in Sawclose, at 7.30pm each night.

There are additional 2:30pm performances on Wednesday and June 8.

Tickets, priced £5.50-39.50, are available on 01225 448844 or at
