" Quality acting and quality writing all on your doorstep. A gem not to be missed."

- Roger Clarke - Behind the Arras


"... a joy from start to finish"

- Neil Bonner - The Stage


"Simply a marvellous play, painfully funny and passionately serious"

- Sunday Times


Starring Tupele Dorgu (Coronation Street, Chicago) as Rita, and Tom Roberts (Garrick Rep Company) as Frank

  The Lichfield Garrick Rep Company present this award-winning comedy in the intimate surroundings of the Studio.

Hairdresser Rita, bored and dissatisfied with her daily routine, is searching for a better life. She enrols on an Open University course and soon her life takes a very different turn. 

Her tutor, Frank, is a world weary academic with a taste for the bottle. He is blissfully unaware of the whirlwind that's about to enter his world. 

A touching and very funny play from one of the country's finest writers.
