Boozy and burned-out university professor Dr. Frank Bryant needs to earn some extra cash to support his expensive alcohol habit, so he agrees to tutor Rita, a brash, free-spirited young hairdresser trying desperately to better herself. The result is British playwright Willy Russell's delightful Pygmalion-style comedy Educating Rita, with Frank playing Henry Higgins to Rita's modern-day Eliza Doolittle. Each has a profound effect on the other, opening up new possibilities for their lives. This touching and comical show explores the transformational nature of education -- which can often come from the most unlikely of teachers. Learn More

John Cummings lives on the top floor of the Aurora Terrace Apartments somewhere in Canada, one mile from town, and directly under an airport’s busy flight path. John is a lonely and divorced back-porch philosopher. Over three-and-a-half years, three very different women occupy the apartment next door. Fay, a hooker; Angel, a young lady who aspires to a life in show business; and Gwen, a woman who has just left her husband. As John reflects on his relationships with neighbors Fay, Angel and Gwen, he shares his unique views on everything from poets to sex.
