Di and Viv and Rose

by Amelia Bullmore

9th to 16th February 2019

A warm and funny play about female friendship with three great roles for women with a playing age of 40’s.

Spanning 27 years the play starts at University in 1983 (pre mobile) when students lined up to use a payphone. Thus the three characters are introduced as they each call home.

Aged 18, three women join forces. Life is fun. Living is intense. Crackling with wisdom and wit, Di and Viv and Rose is a humorous and thoughtful exploration of friendship’s impact on life and life’s impact on friendship.

It charts the steady but sometimes chaotic progression of these three women’s lives and their ultimately enduring bonds, through to 2010.

The varied journeys of their lives take their toll on the characters, forcing them apart and stretching their relationships with each other to a near breaking point.

The play started life at the Hampstead Theatre  with Anna Maxwell-Martin, Gina McKee and Tamsin Outhwaite and then following a successful run transferred in 2015 to the West End of London , this time starring Jenna Russell, Samantha Spiro and Tamsin Outhwaite reprising her role.
