Studio Theatre, Perth is proud to present Educating Rita by Willy Russell
This modern Pygmalion comedy follows Rita, a married hairstylist in her 30s, who decides to go back to school to broaden her horizons. She enrolls in an open university and finds herself assigned to Frank, a jaded older professor courting alcohol to navigate life and divorce. Directed by Jane Stott, this warm, funny, intelligent play about relationships, connections, and freedom is a thought provoking antidote to the year that’s been.
Performances are November 18, 19, 20, 25, 26 and 27 at 7:30 p.m. and Nov 21 and 28 at 2 p.m. Tickets are on sale starting Monday, Oct 18 and can be purchased through ticketsplease.ca. Tickets are $24
