Di and Viv and Rose

Front Cover
Bloomsbury Academic, Sep 20, 2011 - Drama - 96 pages
'How do you want to live here? I mean we could come and go and lead separate lives. Or we could really live together. What do you think?'

Aged 18, three women join forces. Life is fun. Living is intense. Together they feel unassailable. 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.

Di and Viv and Rose charts the steady but sometimes chaotic progression of these three women's lives and their ultimately enduring bonds. 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.

Di and Viv and Rose is Amelia Bullmore's first new play since her 2005 debut Mammals, which won the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize and subsequently embarked on a successful national tour.
