From M6 jct 40 and follow A66 towards Keswick, follow brown signs to Theatre and Lakeside. On foot the theatre is a 5 minute walk from the centre of Keswick.


When married hairdresser Rita enrols on a university course to expand her horizons, little does she realise where the journey will take her.

Her tutor Frank is a frustrated poet, brilliant academic and borderline alcoholic, who’s less than enthusiastic about taking Rita on, but the two soon realise how much they have to teach each other. Moving and hilarious, this heart-warming comedy of self-discovery asks what it takes to change your life.

Russell’s critically acclaimed show comes to Keswick for the first time, starring film and television actor Stephen Tompkinson (Brassed Off, Wild at Heart, DCI Banks) as Frank and introducing Jessica Johnson as Rita.
