Production Description

Casting "Educating Rita." Synopsis: "Bored with teaching undergraduates English literature, Frank Bryant morosely reflects through a whiskey glass on his failed marriage and his attempt at becoming a poet. His world is turned upside down by the arrival of Rita, a hairdresser who has decided to find herself by taking an open university course. Excited by her freewheeling and acute observations, and, let's be honest, by Rita herself, Frank also feels a deep sadness as he watches her warm impulsive reactions being replaced by the sort of cold analytical approach he so much loathes in other students and colleagues."
