This play won the 1980 comic play award. With this in mind, you may be expecting something
vaguely funny. Cast that thought from your mind. The jokes are feeble, and mainly to do with
Rita's lower-class accent. Although this play is short, about 80 pages, it really is not funny.
The story is of Rita, the lower-class hairdresser, who wants to become educated to escape social
conventions. She joins the OU and meets Frank, the alcoholic tutor, who grows to like Rita and want
to help her. The only praise I give this play is for its plot, which is original and well thought
out. But this was spoiled by the jokes. If you saw the film, with its synthesised music, you'll
know what I mean.
