Did you see the film Educating Rita? It's now a stage production and is coming to Guildford.

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

18 March   Menopause The Musical 2 - Dorking Halls

Menopause The Musical 2 is the hysterical sequel to the smash-hit show Menopause The Musical where we fast forwards five years to catch up with the same four characters for tales of their lives, loves and losses.

Hot flushes, mood swings, memory lapses, weight gain - these are a few of our favourite menopausal beginning of the end, but the beginning of a beautiful friendship where love conquers, and friendships never fail.

The play is at the Hawth Theatre on 11 March and also at the Dorking Halls on 18 March.
