Comedy by Willy Russell Directed by Derek Ritschel Frank is an English tutor in his fifties whose disillusioned outlook on life drives him to drink and bury himself in his books. Enter Rita, a forthright 26 year-old hairdresser eager to learn. After weeks of coaxing, Rita slowly wins over the very hesitant Frank with her innate insight and refusal to accept no for an answer. Their relationship as teacher and student blossoms, giving Frank a new sense of self and Rita the knowledge she craves. This production contains adult content and coarse language.
