    With close reference to her speech in Act 1 Scene 4, how does Rita represent the views of Willy Russell?

    4 star(s)

    She believes that the national newspapers do this "so the disease" of not aspiring to be more than your label "is always covered up". The fact that she believes everyone should have the chance to be educated shows her communist way of thinking, as it shows that she thinks that everyone should be equal. In the speech, Rita compares to the working class people as "drug addicts", saying they are similar because "they hate it when one of them tries to break away".

  • Discuss the ways in which Willy Russell develops the characters of Rita and Frank in his play 'Educating Rita'.

    "In my opinion, the play has got a slight twist to it, when the role reversal is consumed within the play, but overall the play is quiet entertaining and typical because it was set in the 1980's which was the ere full of plays and new but twisted plays. This was the same for media when computer graphics enables films to be made more action packed and less dangerous. I also think that Rita did slightly change for the better because she was more confident in herself and passed the English Literature exam easily. From the education she learned, I think that she has more knowledge, respect, and talks formally and is a second-class citizen. The final aspect in which I shall analyze is about the affect the play shall have on the audience after they have completed reading 'Educating Rita' by 'Willy Russell'. I think the play might make the audience think that education is very valuable, important, gains you respect and class in society. Mohson Qayyum Page 1"

  • Billy Liar - Discuss your opinions of Billy's 3 girlfriends. Do they give a fair representation of women, or are they biased and stereotyped and calculated to bring comedy to the performance?

    "Conclusion I can confidently say that I do not believe that Liz and Barbara have been stereotyped. I think that Barbara has been modified and configured to bring comedy and that Liz has to been changed to bring romance to the play. I noticed my-self using the word society and talking about how people if the 1960's were, for this reason I believe that the play relates to the 1960's and is about the 1960's, it is relevant to contemporary society."
