Andrea Dunbar’s semi-autobiographical play was written in 1982 when she was just 19. It’s a vivid portrait of girls caught between brutal childhood and an unpromising future, and hungry for adult adventure.
Told with wicked humour, startling insight and a great ear for dialogue, RITA, SUE AND BOB TOO famously became a cult film. The classic play’s original director Max Stafford-Clark directs this major new production.
'Dunbar’s play is as fresh as a stiff northerly wind off the Pennines. The story is bursting with a gutsy vitality’
