Educating Rita
“Educating Rita,” by Willy Russell; Jan. 22 through Feb. 1, at the Tarpon Springs Cultural Center, 101 South Pinellas Ave., Tarpon Springs.

Directed by Rick Bronson, “Educating Rita” examines Frank, a tutor of English in his 50s whose disillusioned outlook on life drives him to drink and bury himself in his books. Enter Rita, a forthright 26-year-old hairdresser who is eager to learn. After weeks of cajoling, Rita slowly wins over the very hesitant Frank with her innate insight and refusal to accept no for an answer. Their relationship as teacher and student blossoms, ultimately giving Frank a new sense of self and Rita the knowledge she so craves.

The play became a hit film with Michael Caine and Julie Walters.
