Educating Rita

EDUCATING RITA at Live Theatre Workshop

By Willy Russell

Directed by Paul Schumacher

Bill Epstein
and Kristi Loera



" A marvelous play, painfully funny and passionately serious; a hilarious social documentary..." - London Sunday Times

Frank (Bill Epstein) is a fifty something English Tutor whose disillusioned outlook on life drives him to drink and bury himself in his books. Enter Rita (Kristi Loera) - a forthright young hairdresser who is hungry for education. Frank is reticent to listen or make any changes in his life, but eventually, charming, witty, and clever Rita drives Frank to believe in himself once again. Their relationship is magic and blossoms in this marvelous, funny play.
