Starring Tim Pigott-Smith as university professor Frank, and Laura Dos Santos as the young, brash hairdresser who discovers a passion for English literature.

Educating Rita played in repertory with Shirley Valentine at the Trafalgar Studios 1 from 8 July to 30 October 2010.

  • Newcomer Laura Dos Santos is a marvellously convincing Rita – a talent to watch.

    Mail on Sunday
  • Superb, humorous and deeply moving. A truly great play.
