Join Director Colleen McClure and the cast for questions, answers, and comments after the performance of Educating Rita.
It is the 1980s, Liverpool, England. Frank is a tutor of English in his fifties whose disillusioned outlook on life drives him to drink and to bury himself in his books. Enter Rita, a forthright 26 year-old hairdresser who is eager to learn and to change her social circumstances through the pursuit of higher education. Willy Russell delightfully weaves together the lives of these two unique characters, with great wit, humor and profound insight.
Performance starts at 2 p.m. Talk-Back follows.
