Show Information

Rita is unhappy with her job and the low expectations of those around her. She wants to know ‘everything’, so embarks on an Open University course in English Literature which will change her life forever.

Thought-provoking, funny and moving, Educating Rita is a comic masterpiece and a modern stage classic. Originally commissioned by the Royal Shakespeare Company in 1980, Educating Rita ran for over two years in the West End. It subsequently became a BAFTA award-winning film starring Michael Caine and Julie Walters.

Educating Rita is directed by Emma Lucia following her successful production of A Doll’s House which was performed by Clwyd Theatr Cymru at the Sherman last year.
