Description: The Uncommon Players in association with the Northcott Theatre present: Educating Rita by Willy Russell This bitter-sweet comedy, made famous in a film with Julie Walters and Michael Caine, hilariously explores the prejudices of a strong-minded pair in their story of increasing mutual respect. It makes for an evening of classic comedy, and with University Degrees becoming expensive commodities it also asks penetrating questions about the purpose and value of investments in education, for students and teachers alike. Educating Rita is simply a marvellous play, painfully funny and passionately serious; a hilarious social documentary; a fairy-tale with a quizzical, half-happy ending. A high quality, intelligent and professional performance, (Remote Goat) Following the huge success of their performance of Talking Heads last year, we just had to invite this talented company back with their new show!
