Educating Rita, Willy Russell’s classic comedy, is coming to the Under Ground Theatre in Eastbourne from Wednesday, June 4-Friday, June 6 (7.30pm).
Brash, straight-talking hairdresser Rita is determined to change her life. She wants to know ‘everything’ and she thinks the Open University might just be the answer.
World-weary, alcohol-fuelled lecturer Frank is a failed poet, a self-acknowledged ‘appalling teacher of appalling students’. In fact, he’s just about given up.
In need of extra cash, he agrees to tutor Rita, totally unaware of the whirlwind that’s about to enter his world…
Touching, life-affirming and very, very funny, Educating Rita is a comic masterpiece from one of our best-loved writers. From Bootcamp Theatre, the people behind The History Boys and Bully Boy at the Under Ground.
Tickets £11 & £9. Available from Eastbourne Tourist Information or on the door.
