Rita, Sue and Bob Too/A State Affair

Rita, Sue and Bob Too (Bradford 1982). A State Affair (Today's stories Yorkshire, 2000). 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. A comic classic Rita, Sue and Bob Too caught the mood of the early Thatcher years and became widely recognised as a marker of its time. Eighteen years later, life on Britain's council estates is back in the spotlight as reports of a hidden underclass begin to emerge. In the summer of 2000, Max Stafford-Clark and Out of Joint's actors journeyed back to the estates around Bradford and Leeds where Andrea Dunbar grew up. A State Affair is a record of what they found - has life there changed since the 1980's, or for that matter the 1880's? This production contains scenes and language which may offend some people.
