"Educating Rita" Paperback

Part of the Modern Classics series



Educating Rita, about a working-class Liverpool girl's hunger for education, is 'simply a marvellous play, painfully funny and passionately serious; a hilarious social documentary; a fairy-tale with a quizzical, half-happy ending.' Sunday Times Educating Rita premiered at the RSC Warehouse, London, in June 1980.

Voted Best Comedy of 1980, it was subsequently made into a highly successful film with Michael Caine and Julie Walters.
