Rita, Sue and Bob Too

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, written when she was just 19, is a vivid portrait of girls caught between a 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 was adapted into a cult 80s film, and the classic play’s original director, Max Stafford-Clark, directs this major new production. 

Post Show Discussion: Wednesday 15 November

“Dunbar’s writing is never judgmental or sentimental – she simply wrote about what she knew” - The Times

“Dunbar’s play is as fresh as a stiff northerly wind off the Pennines.  The story is bursting with a gutsy vitality” - London Evening Standard
