Black Teeth and a Brilliant Smile
By Adelle Stripe
Adapted for the stage by Lisa Holdsworth
We’re in The Beacon, Buttershaw, and it’s Christmas 1990. That’s in Bradford.
Andrea Dunbar is here, she’s the one that wrote Rita Sue and Bob Too and The Arbor – a true Bradford lass, a mum, sister, and best friend too.
‘Black Teeth and a Brilliant Smile’ is a play, adapted by Lisa Holdsworth from Adelle Stripe’ acclaimed novel of Dunbar’s life. Filled with a host of Bradford characters, laugh out loud banter, and some dark times too.
Men have always told Andrea’s story. But this evening, she’s telling it for herself.
