    Hey nagina

    I dunno if my notes will help but they got me full marks. In educating rita u can talk about:

    – Franks hair and how it is a physical barrier to his transformation
    – The costume transforms through the play. Especially when Frank gives her costume in the end, shows she has fully transformed.
    – Rita language changes, she replaces jargon with expressions from the academic world
    – She moves away from Danny to her mothers to flat with trish. Shows change

    Realted text that im using are
    – “my father began as a god” by ian mudie
    – “The red tree” by Shaun Tan

    Any more questions, feel free to email me @ bet_u_jealous@hotmail.com
