Rita, Sue and Bob Too

Available

Description

"A bleak and brilliant testament to a life of fleeting pleasure and diminished expectations ... a play of sharp observation, a document of its times." The Guardian

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, Rita Sue and Bob Too offers an unwavering portrait of a world of limitations and urban desolation.

Published for the first time in Methuen Drama's Modern Classics series, featuring a new introduction by Katie Beswick.
