A BIG-HEARTED COMEDY ABOUT LIFE LESSONS
“Like watching a flower blossom in time-lapse photography” —Variety
Feisty working-class hairdresser Rita is plenty street-smart but not book smart. Not yet. Determined to improve herself, she enrolls in Dr. Frank Bryant’s literature course—and enters his life like a breath of fresh air. While the world-weary academic educates Rita on Shakespeare and Chekhov, she schools him on everything else. Invigorating and life-affirming, Educating Rita just might have a thing or two to teach you.
Running time: Approx. 2 hours 15 minutes, including one intermission
