★ ★ ★ ★ A bleak and brilliant testament to a life of fleeting pleasure and diminished expectations”
The Guardian | Michael Billington

Best friends Rita and Sue get a lift home from married Bob after babysitting his kids, and the three start a fling each thinks they can control.

Told with wicked humour and a great ear for dialogue, Andrea Dunbar’s semi-autobiographical play is a vivid portrait of girls caught between brutal childhood and an unpromising future, both hungry for adult adventure.

It was rip-roaringly funny and totally enjoyable from the very first lines

Anne Roberts, Backstage Access

The actors are passionate and vivid in their portrayals and despite the humour you are made so aware of the serious and worrying side of how vulnerable people are regardless of their sex.

Robert Wright, TheatreWorld
