About

Andrea Dunbar’s ground-breaking play Rita, Sue and Bob Too will now visit Scarborough Spa.

The twisted, dark and hilarious comedy drama that tells the story of Rita and Sue, two working class girls from a rundown council estate is being brought to The Spa Theatre by Theatrical Powerhouse, Diva Productions.

Andrea Dunbar’s semi-autobiographical work is a funny, touching and vibrant play, full of wicked humour and is a stark snapshot of 1980s northern working-class life, under an increasingly repressive Tory government. In 1986, the play was adapted into a film of the same name, and attracted a cult following due to its intimate portrayal of ordinary people’s lives.
