Rita, Sue and Bob Too

  • Show Information

By Andrea Dunbar
Directed by Kate Wasserberg

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 taste of adult adventure, the three start a fling each of them think they can control.

Told with wicked humour, startling insight and a great ear for dialogue, Andrea Dunbar’s semi-autobiographical play is a vivid portrait of girls caught between brutal childhood and an unpromising future.

Written when she was just 19, Rita, Sue and Bob Too was an instant hit, later adapted into a much-loved 80s film. It proved as fresh and popular as ever in this new production by Kate Wasserberg, garnering great praise on tour and during its packed-out London run.
