Character Evolvement in Educating Rita Rita is just one of the two main characters in Willy Russell's Educating Rita. Rita's character changes in all aspects of her own life: From her attitude to her work and her private life for her overall look and understanding- this is the way: Rita enters the play at first as a standard, working class hairdresser. You can gather all of this immediately, in the fact that in her first sentence she addresses to Frank includes the word 'bleedin". In these opening minutes of the play she does not seem to be able to restrain her address and tends to babble on about insignificant issues - like Frank's 'pornographic' picture on his wall. She admits to her 'difficulty' and says 'I speak to much do not I?' She later explains that she just talks to this surplus and irrelevance when she feels uncomfortable-so she is anxious about Frank. In the initial two scenes you'll be able to see that Rita is from a normal, working class, Liverpudlian family because I have already mentioned. Another manner in which you can spot this is by the vast amount of letters missing from her traces. Take this line from Act 1 Scene 1 for example: 'He has pissed off an' stands in the street shoutin' an' difficult' death to come out an' fight.' The astronomical amount of apostrophes perform to demonstrate that she isn't very well spoken, that is because of her upbringing that is poorer. All of this changes in the play, but as Rita begins to 'find meself' and from the end of the play she is quoted saying that she feels just like a 'new girl'. Not only the pronunciations of the phrases differ in Frank's but also the actual words that Rita uses would never be found leaving someone.
