"Rita, Sue & Bob Too! is an adult comedy play filled to the brim of laugh out loud moments"
Originally an 80’s cult classic movie, Rita, Sue & Bob Too! has been adapted into a play and is currently playing at the Epstein Theatre, Liverpool after transferring from St Helens’ Theatre Royal. Not for the easily offended, this 18+ play has adult humour, sexual references and even nudity.
The play tells of Rita and Sue, two best friend schoolgirls who in their spare time babysit for Bob and his wife, Michelle. Bob embarks on an affair with the friends unbeknownst to Michelle. Each of the girls vie for Bob’s attention to the detriment of their friendship.
The plot is simple and leaves an array of room for the actors to delve into the comedy this play is most known for. The text written by Andrea Dunbar in 1987 is laugh out loud throughout. The small cast are perfectly assembled and each have developed their characterisation extensively. Each talented member nailed their comedy timing and physical comedy.
