A provocative double-bill taking a candid look at life on Britain's council estates over a 20-year period. Written in 1982, "Rita, Sue and Bob Too" follows the lives of two feisty school girls on a Bradford estate and their affair with a married man. Sharp and funny, it captures the mood of the early Thatcher years. Eighteen years later Max Stafford-Clark and the Out of Joint theatre company journeyed back to the estates of Bradford and Leeds. "A State Affair" is an account of what they found.
