Originally commissioned by Max Stafford-Clark for the Royal Court in 1982, Rita, Sue and Bob Too caused a sensation on its first performance for its 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.

Eighteen years later, Stafford-Clarke returned with a group of actors to the Bradford estates that Andrea knew. A State Affair by Robin Soans 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, 1986.

Out of Joint's production of Rita, Sue and Bob Too and A State Affair premiered at the Liverpool Everyman Theatre in October 2000.
