A new production of Willy Russell’s comedy, Educating Rita, will be running at Theatre on The Bay from Wednesday July 5 to Saturday July 15.

Rita White, a young Liverpudlian hairdresser enrolls in an Open University course to study literature to better herself and escape from her drab and dreary working-class world.

Featured in the titular role of Rita is Fleur du Cap and Naledi nominee, Zoë McLaughlin. Playing opposite her as Professor Frank Bryant is multi-award-winning actor Jason K Ralph. This production of Educating Rita features a brand-new score by composer Jonathan M Blair and is being directed by Paul Griffiths.

The production carries an age-restriction of PG for mild-language usage.

Tickets cost from R150 to R250 through Webtickets or the Theatre on The Bay box-office at 021 438 3300 or 021 438 3301.
