About George Costigan:

Earlier this year, theatre, television and screen actor, George Costigan added a new string to his bow with the release of his debut novel ‘The Single Soldier’, a story set in wartime France during the German occupation. The novel has received high praise from well-known names including musician and novelist Willy Russell who described ‘The Single Soldier’ as “A magnificent, big beast of a book” and award-winning TV writer Sally Wainwright who said: “The Single Soldier is beautifully written. The characters and the community are so vividly and colourfully conjured up.”

And so, with more than 40 years in the industry under his belt, who better to share the tricks of the trade with the actors and writers of the future than George Costigan?

Synopsis for Rita, Sue and Bob Too:

Rita, Sue and Bob Too is a 1987 British comedy-drama film directed by Alan Clarke, set in Bradford, about two teenaged schoolgirls who have a sexual fling with a married man.
