“Educating Rita” By Willy Russel

Western Reserve Playhouse is pleased to announce the inaugural performance of their new $5 Buck Series, a reading of Willy Russell’s Educating Rita, on Sunday, August 19th at 2:00 p.m.  Educating Rita by Willy Russell,  is the story of Frank, a disillusioned poet, turned professor of English literature, who has taken on the (in his eyes) unenviable task of tutoring non-traditional students enrolled in open university for their final exams. Enter Rita, an abrasively forthright hairdresser who is hungry for knowledge. An unexpected friendship blossoms, offering surprising rewards for both student and teacher.
