OUR RECENT SHOW - 10 -12 November

Educating Rita

theCompany present this all time favourite, which follows the relationship between Rita, a Liverpudlian working class hairdresser and Frank, a middle-aged university lecturer, during the course of a year. The play started life under the banner of The Royal Shakespeare Company in 1980 with Julie Walters taking the lead, but is best remembered for the successful film adaptation in 1983, when Miss Walters was joined by screen star Michael Caine. Since then there have been many revivals and tours.

The theme of working class girl making good through education was influenced by George Bernard Shaw's “Pygmalion” and it has become one of the late twentieth century's most well regarded and popular plays.

theCompany is very pleased to have been given special permission by Willy Russell's management to bring this production to the Heron Theatre.
