Rita Wolf (born Rita Ghose,[1] 25 February 1960 in Calcutta, India) is a British-Indian actress and theatre producer.

Wolf moved to London when quite young and trained at the Royal Court Youth Theatre. She has appeared on British television and in many theatre productions. Her first leading film role came in 1984 in the movie Majdha, the real starting point of her career. Since then, she has had major parts on stage and screen in both the United States and the United Kingdom.

In 1990, Wolf and Rukhsana Ahmad founded the Kali Theatre Company in London, which is a registered charity whose goal is to encourage, develop, promote and produce the works of Asian female writers. The Kali is supported in part by grants from the London Arts and the Arts Council of England. She now lives in New York City with her two children, Kiran and Anjeli. Anjeli Chapman had a major role in The War Within, a film that provides an in-depth look at terrorism and its impact on society. Kiran Chapman was in A Heartbeat to Baghdad, a play about war and its effect on people.
