Rita Sue And Bob Too

Synopsis:
Sharp, funny and disarmingly direct, andrea Dunbar's semi-autobiographical Rita, Sue and Bob Too follows the lives of two feisty schoolgirls who grow up on a Bradford estate and start an affair with a married man. Written in 1982 when Dunbar was only 18, the play was originally commissioned and directed by Max Stafford-Clark. Rita, Sue and Bob Too caught the mood of the early Thatcher years and became widely recognised as a marker of its time
