What You'll Get

Boozy and burned-out university professor Dr. Frank Bryant (Dexter Hamlett) needs to earn some extra cash to support his expensive alcohol habit, so he agrees to tutor Rita (Chelsea Mayo), a brash, free-spirited, young Liverpool hairdresser trying desperately to better herself. The result is British playwright Willy Russell’s refreshing Pygmalion-style comedy Educating Rita, with Frank playing Henry Higgins to Rita’s anti-Eliza Doolittle. Each has a profound effect on the other, opening up new possibilities for their lives. This touching and comical D.C. area premiere explores the transformational nature of education, which can often come from the most unlikely of teachers. Educating Rita was also a popular film, starring Michael Caine, that received three Oscar nominations, including Best Picture – and now the stage version, which is rarely produced in the U.S., lands at Theatre on the Run.
