REGIONAL PREMIERE

“I used to think growing up together meant you just happened to shoot up alongside certain people but now I think the way you shoot up - the shape you shoot up in - is contingent on a few people shooting up with you.”


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 whose relationship spans 30 dramatic years.

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