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 each of them think they control. Andrea Dunbar’s semi-autobiographical play, written when she was just 19, is a vivid portrait of girls caught between brutal childhood and an unpromising future, both hungry for adult adventure.
Told with wicked humour, startling insight and a great ear for dialogue, Rita, Sue and Bob Too was adapted into a hit 80s film. See this major new production, following a run at the Royal Court Theatre, directed by Kate Wasserberg following her hugely successful production of The Rise and Fall of Little Voice here.
