Funny, astute and vivid affair drama Rita, Sue And Bob Too returns to the Royal Court 35 years after its premiere at the venue.
Rita, Sue And Bob Too will run in the Jerwood Theatre Downstairs, Tuesday 9 January 2018 – Saturday 27 January 2018 as part of a UK tour co-produced by Out of Joint, Royal Court Theatre and Octagon Theatre.
The show sees 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 they each think they control.
Andrea Dunbar wrote her semi-autobiographical play Rita, Sue And Bob Too for the Royal Court Theatre in 1982 when she was just 19. It’s a vivid portrait of girls caught between brutal childhood and an unpromising future, hungry for adult adventure.
Epic, authentic, inquisitive and authentic, Out of Joint is a national and international touring theatre company, developing entertaining theatre that broadens horizons and investigates our times.
Told with wicked humour, startling insight and a great ear for dialogue, Rita, Sue And Bob Too went on to become a hit film, and now returns to the Royal Court 35 years after its premiere. Kate Wasserberg directs this major new production of a classic play.
