“As long as you’re alive that’s all that matters”
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 for the Royal Court Theatre in 1982 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 startling insight and wicked humour, Rita Sue and Bob Too was adapted into a cult 80s film. The play’s original director Max Stafford-Clark directs this major new production.

Dunbar's writing is never judgmental - she simply wrote what she knew.
