Sexual Tensions Mount In New Stage Production
More than 30 years after the controversial film of the same name comes a new stage production of Rita, Sue & Bob Too that promises to be just as shocking. The story remains the same - best friends Rita and Sue get a lift home from married Bob after babysitting his children. When he takes the scenic route, offering them a taste of adult adventure, the three start a fling each of them think they can control. Andrea Dunbar's semi-autobiographical play, which was made into a 1987 film starring George Costigan, Michelle Holmes and Siobhan Finneran, is a vivid portrait of teenage girls caught between a brutal upbringing and an unpromising future in this bold production by Kate Wasserberg for Out of Joint Theatre.
