Diva Productions
Rita, Sue and Bob Too

Rita, Sue and Bob Too is a twisted, dark and hilarious comedy drama that tells the story of Rita and Sue, two working class girls from a rundown Bradford council estate who are about to finish their final year at school. In their spare time, they earn money babysitting for married couple Bob and Michelle. Behind Michelle’s back, Bob embarks on an affair with both Rita and Sue, who are both hungry for adult adventure. It is only a matter of time before Michelle and Sue’s parents finds out and when they do sparks most definitely fly!

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.

Diva Productions are proud to bring back their successful 2022 Yorkshire Tour which was described to have “the heart the size of Yorkshire”, to National audiences this year
