“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.

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

The Times

Told with startling insight, a great ear for dialogue and wicked humour, Rita Sue and Bob Too was adapted into a cult 80s film. The classic play’s original director Max Stafford-Clark directs this major new production.
