Rita, Sue and Bob Too by Andrea Dunbar; A State Affair by Robin Soans When it first came out, Rita Sue and Bob Too caused a sensation for it’s frank portrayal of child sexuality in a Northern Town; the fact that the play was based on the writer’s own experience only added to the furore. Max Stafford-Clark originally commissioned Rita, Sue and Bob Too for the Royal Court in 1982. Eighteen years later, he returned with a group of Out of Joint actors to the Bradford estates that Andrea knew. A State Affair is a record of what they found.”A genius straight from the slums” – Shelagh Delaney (on Andrea Dunbar) Mail on Sunday”This is life, the facts are there …these things do go on – maybe not in every circle, but certainly in mine” – Andrea Dunbar, Yorkshire Post, 1986Out of Joint’s production of Rita Sue and Bob Too and A State Affair premiered at the Liverpool Everyman Theatre in October 2000.
