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 that 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 two girls caught between a brutal childhood and an unpromising future, both hungry for adult adventure.

Told with startling insight, a great ear for dialogue and wicked humour, Rita, Sue And Bob Too was adapted into a cult ’80s film. Kate Wasserberg, Artistic Director of Out of Joint, will direct this major new production of a twentieth century comedy classic.

Duration: 80 minutes with no interval
