  • Brash, straight-talking Rita bursts into University night classes determined to change her life. Her tutor Frank is an alcohol-fueled lecturer, a failed poet and a self-acknowledged ‘appalling teacher of appalling students’ who has just about given up. In need of some extra cash, he agrees to tutor Rita, totally unaware of the whirlwind that’s about to enter his world.

    In Willy Russell’s intimate comedy about self-discovery and choices, Rita shows Frank that sometimes, students are the best teachers.

    “A marvelous play, painfully funny and passionately serious!”
    - – The Sunday Times

    “A truly great play… a succession of blissful one-liners!”
    - – Daily Telegraph

    Student Matinee – Presented by TD Bank Group
