Is it time for a change? Fancy a night out with the girl’s and a pre-show glass of prosecco? If so, come to Educating Rita: 8th & 9th March at the Theatre Royal
Following its record-breaking run at the Lyric Theatre Belfast in 2016, this reimagined production of Willy Russell’s award-winning comedy embarks on a tour of Ireland in 2017 with its original cast of Michael James Ford and Kerri Quinn.
It’s 1980, and Susan ‘Rita’ White has decided it’s time for a change.
A wise-cracking, no-nonsense hairdresser from the working-class streets of Belfast, Rita is tired of her job, her prospects, her husband, her life. She wants to be the sort of woman who knows the difference between Shaw’s Bridge and George Bernard Shaw, and so enrols in an Open Learning course in English Literature where she meets her tutor Frank - a lecturer from North Down who teaches at Queen’s University - and begins her journey of self-discovery.
Pre show glass of prosecco €5 per person. Show starts @ 8pm - Tickets €21.00 available from the Theatre Royal box-office.
