Educating Rita

Educating Rita, the best British comedy ever comes to Blackpool.

When married hairdresser Rita enrols on a university course to expand her horizons, little does she realise where the journey will take her.

Her tutor Frank is a frustrated poet, brilliant academic and dedicated drunk, who’s less than enthusiastic about taking Rita on, but the two soon realise 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 stared Julie Walters and Michael Caine.

Written by one of our greatest ever playwrights Willy Russell and starring one of our best loved actors Stephen Tompkinson as Frank and introducing Jessica Johnson as Rita.

Willy Russell’s credits include the Olivier Award-winning Blood Brothers and Shirley Valentine. One of the UK’s most celebrated writers, his works are constantly in production across the world.
