Educating RitaAs part of its 40th anniversary tour, Educating Rita comes to Rose Theatre Kingston this March with TV and theatre stars Stephen Tompkinson and Jessica Johnson in the lead roles. The play tells the story of married hairdresser Rita, who hopes to expand her horizons with the help of an Open University course. While on the course, she meets university tutor Frank, a frustrated poet, talented academic and passionate drinker. While Frank isn't too enthusiastic about teaching Rita, he soon finds that her enthusiasm helps to reignite his passion with literature.
