Hambledon been established in the area for six years promoting local arts through new writing and adapting classics, presenting Hancock’s Half Hour: The Lost Episodes, a sell out week’s run in London, last year.
Educating Rita is a comedy by award-winning Liverpudlian playwright, Willy Russell and tells the story of Susan (who initially calls herself Rita).
She is dissatisfied with the routine of her work and social life, seeks inner growth by signing up for an Open University course in English Literature.
Rita’s tutor, Frank, is a middle-aged, alcoholic academic who has taken on the tutorship to pay for his drink. The two have an immediate and profound effect on one another; and the play tells the story of Rita’s development and growth as she is ‘educated’ and the effect that the process has on Frank and his attitude to education and his own life and career.
