Overview

Rita, Sue & Bob Too & State Affair by Andrea Dunbar, Robin Soans

Rita, Sue and Bob Too by Andrea Dunbar; A State Affair by Robin Soans

When it first came out, Rita Sue and Bob Too caused a sensation for it's frank portrayal of child sexuality in a Northern Town; the fact that the play was based on the writer's own experience only added to the furore. Max Stafford-Clark originally commissioned Rita, Sue and Bob Too for the Royal Court in 1982. Eighteen years later, he returbaned with a group of Out of Joint actors to the Bradford estates that Andrea knew. A State Affair is a record of what they found.
"A genius straight from the slums" - Shelagh Delaney (on Andrea Dunbar) Mail on Sunday

"This is life, the facts are there … these things do go on - maybe not in every circle, but certainly in mine" - Andrea Dunbar, Yorkshire Post, 1986

Out of Joint's production of Rita Sue and Bob Too and A State Affair premiered at the Liverpool Everyman Theatre in October 2000.
