Have had a look at Excavating Rita… by Richard Herring
I saw it at the Edinburgh festival a few years back… pant wettingly funny.. and horrible to watch, as you can’t help but see yourself in one of the characters… (not saying which one I was)

MIKE (the Supervisor)
(TRYING TO HIDE ANNOYANCE AND APPEAR LIKE A FUN GUY) All right, all right. We’ve all had a bit of a laugh there, (HE INDICATES THAT THEY SHOULD GET BACK TO WORK) but my point stands.

No, it’s “but it helps actually… er.. ”
go on and treat yourself to the whole script…
