These three women are thrown together in their late teens. They are very different people, but it isn’t long before they are living in each other’s pockets.

                   

Life is a blast and together they can do anything. But life also has unexpected plans for them…

                

A funny, moving and surprising story of three friends and their relationship over almost 30 years, from 1983 (cue some excellent 80s costumes and dancing) until 2010.      

Above: the cast in the very first read-through

Di and Viv and Rose was written by Amelia Bullmore, an actress-writer best known for her portrayal of Steph Barnes in Coronation Street and more recently appearances in Happy Valley and Scott & Bailey. The play transferred to the West End after enjoying a sell-out run at Hampstead Theatre.

The director is Lotte Wakeham, who wowed audiences last year with the spectacular show The World Goes Round

Cast members are Grace Cookey-Gam, Margaret Cabourn-Smith and Polly Lister, who you will have seen in the full-on role of Mari in The Rise and Fall of Little Voice.
