Casting announced for Rita Sue and Bob Too tour

Rita Sue and Bob Too UK Tour

The cast of Rita, Sue and Bob Too – Samantha Robinson, Taj Atwal, Sally Bankes, David Walker, James Atherton, Gemma Dobson.

 

Casting has been announced for Andrea Dunbar's landmark play Rita, Sue and Bob Too directed by Max Stafford-Clark  which starts a UK tour on the 6th September 2017.

Best friends Rita and Sue get a lift home from married Bob after babysitting his kids. When he takes the scenic route and offers them a bit of fun, the three start a fling they each think they control.

The cast will include James Atherton (Treasure Island – West End, Wallenstein – Chichester), Taj Atwal (East is East – West End, Educating Rita – Hull Truck), Sally Bankes (The Winter's Tale, Two Noble Kinsmen – RSC), Gemma Dobson (TV – In The Club 2,  Brief Encounters), Samantha Robinson ( Screwed – Theatre503, Educating Rita – Mercury Colchester) and David Walker (Hangmen – West End, Crap Dad – West Yorkshire Playhouse).

Commenting on the play, Director Max Stafford-Clark said; “When Andrea wrote her first two plays, she was a teenager from a rough council estate who’d never been to the theatre. Now, thirty-five years after its premiere, Rita Sue and Bob Too takes its place in the Octagon and Royal Court’s seasons in the role of Classic Play. It’s one of the privileges of my career that Andrea’s astute, fresh and funny writing reached my desk, and it is exciting to bring her vivid, albeit alarming world to life again with these fine actors.”

The Rita, Sue and Bob Too UK tour is co-produced by Out of Joint, Royal Court Theatre and Octagon Theatre.
