Educating Rita is hitting the road for its first ever UK tour in 2021 – this is your guide to the show on the road.

From the 2021 Educating Rita tour cast to all the upcoming dates and venues, here’s all you need to know.


The touring production cast of Willy Russell’s hit play will star Stephen Tompkinson as Frank and introducing Jessica Johnson as Rita

A teaser of the show shares: “When married hairdresser Rita enrols on a university course to expand her horizons, little does she realise where the journey will take her.

“Her tutor Frank is a frustrated poet, brilliant academic and dedicated drinker, who’s less than enthusiastic about taking Rita on, but the two soon realise how much they have to teach each other.

The comedy play previously won the Olivier award when it was produced in London’s West End by the RSC and went on to be adapted into the multi award winning film of the same name, starring Julie Walters and Michael Caine.

Educating Rita has a running time of around 1 hour, 30 minutes with an age recommendation of 14+ due to strong language.
