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 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 wicked humour, startling insight and a great ear for dialogue, this new edition of Rita Sue and Bob Too was published to coincide with the production produced by Out of Joint, Bolton Octagon and the Royal Court Theatre.
