★ ★ ★ ★ 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.
