• Response to chapter 2: Educating Rita today

      Goodwyn, Andrew (Taylor and Francis, 2019-09-06)
      In this response to Corley’s chapter on Educating Rita, the author considers elements that have contributed to the endurance of Russell’s play over the last 40 years. Acknowledging the importance of Corley’s focus on the mentor-mentee relationship, Goodwyn also considers how audiences have responded to the wide-ranging humor of the play, the relationship between student and teacher and the realistic connections to the UK’s Open University system.
