“Do you think it would be better if you and me got ourselves steady boyfriends?”

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 wrote her semi-autobiographical play for the Royal Court Theatre in 1982 when she was just 19. It’s a vivid portrait of girls caught between brutal childhood and an unpromising future, hungry for adult adventure.

Told with wicked humour, startling insight and a great ear for dialogue, Rita Sue and Bob Too became a hit film. Kate Wasserberg directs this major new production.

‘Dunbar’s writing is never judgemental or sentimental – she simply wrote about what she knew’ The Times
