Educating Rita by Willy Russell
Frank is a cynical, burnt-out English professor, who drinks far too much whiskey. Rita is a hairdresser and a bit naïve. She has however, a wonderful and indeed desperate thirst for knowledge and she chooses Frank of all people to introduce her to culture.
Frank soon discovers that Rita has a lot more common sense than the so-called educated class in which he moves. He begins to fall in love with Rita for her zest for life, her almost childlike qualities, and her simple, natural intelligence. But Rita’s life soon changes in this new environment.
Two very different worlds then collide, merging to procure a charming human comedy and a wonderfully entertaining modern day Pygmalion.
