By Willy Russell Directed by Rosina Reynolds Previews: January 9 – 11, 2013 January 12 – February 3, 2013 "An effervescent crowd-pleaser." -The Boston Globe From the author of SHIRLEY VALENTINE: In this award winning comedy, Frank, a university lecturer, needs to earn some extra money, so he agrees to tutor Rita, a brash, earthy hairdresser with a recently discovered passion for higher education. The result is a delightful Pygmalion-style comedy filled with self-discoveries, temptation, and heartfelt humanity that tackles personal and social issues with insight and grace. Made into a highly successful film starring Michael Caine and Julie Walters, you will see why the play captivated audiences from London to New York with its humor, heart, and intelligence. "Superb, humorous and deeply moving. A truly great play. "- Daily Telegraph
