‘In reply to the question "Suggest how you would resolve the staging difficulties inherent in a production of Ibsen's Peer Gynt", you have written, quote: "Do it on the radio." Unquote.’

Rita, a married hair stylist in her 20s, wants to go back to school. Despite his personal problems, Frank helps Rita to realise her academic potential. In turn, her passion for learning revitalises his love of teaching. However, when Rita's blue-collar spouse learns that his wife is more interested in education than homemaking, he becomes frustrated by her newfound independence.
Willy Russell’s modern classic later became a hit film starring Michael Caine and Julie Walters.

Following Friday's performance there will be an After Dark session which is an opportunity to meet members of the cast and creative team to discuss the production.
