Rita, a spirited young hairdresser from Liverpool, yearns desperately for an education. Pursuing her dream, Rita enrolls at the Open University for non-traditional students. Her tutor Frank, a cynical career academic, teaches in order to pay for his drink. To his astonishment, Frank’s spirit is awakened by Rita’s comic honesty and passionate intellect. Together they embark on a challenging and wildly funny journey through the likes of Yeats, Ibsen and E.M. Forster. EDUCATING RITA was made into a hit film in 1983 starring Michael Caine and Julie Walters.
