Best friends Rita and Sue get a lift home from married Bob after babysitting his kids. When he takes the scenic route and offers them a bit of fun, the three start a fling they each think they control.

 

Andrea Dunbar’s semi-autobiographical play was written in 1982 when she was just 19. It’s a vivid portrait of girls caught between brutal childhood and an unpromising future, and hungry for adult adventure.

 

Told with wicked humour, startling insight and a great ear for dialogue, RITA, SUE AND BOB TOO famously became a cult film.

WHATS ON STAGE

 

'Dunbar’s play is as fresh as a stiff northerly wind off the Pennines. The story is bursting with a gutsy vitality’
