Review: 'Educating Rita' at the Dukes

7/4/18: Dukes Director Sarah Punshon follows her Christmas success 'Aladdin' with another strong production, Educating Rita. It's an economical play. One set, two characters, several years. Played in the round, it is intimate, and more compelling than any film could be. Read Virtual-Lancaster's review.
