Event: Di and Viv and Rose at the Hampstead Theatre
Location: Hampstead Theatre, NW3
Di and Viv and Rose is a play about three university friends, following their lives from 1983 at the beginning of the friendship, meeting up again years later to see how their lives have turned out and their friendship evolved.
The play is by actress and writer Amelia Bullmore (known for recent roles in the Olympics spoof Twenty Twelve and cop show Scott & Bailey). When it first played at Hampstead Theatre’s Downstairs space in 2011 it sold out, and has now transferred to the theatre’s main stage.
Tamzin Outhwaite, who was in the original cast, returns, joined by Anna Maxwell Martin and Gina McKee. The play is directed by Anna Mackmin, who recently directed Hedda Gabler at the Old Vic theatre.
