Photo Flash: In Rehearsals with DI AND VIV AND ROSE at the Stephen Joseph Theatre

Three women are thrown together in their late teens. They are very different people, but it isn't long before they're living in each other's pockets. Life is a blast, and together they can do anything. But life also has unexpected plans for them...

Check out photos from rehearsals below!

Di and Viv and Rose is the funny, moving and surprising story of three friends whose relationship spans 30 dramatic years. Written by actor-writer Amelia Bullmore (best known as Steph Barnes in Coronation Street, Vicky Fleming in Happy Valley and DCI Gill Murray in Scott & Bailey, of which she also wrote several episodes), the original production had a sell-out run at Hampstead Theatre and transferred to the West End.

Di and Viv and Rose is directed by Lotte Wakeham, who last year directed The World Goes Round at the SJT, and also the musical Wonderland, currently touring the UK. Lotte was Associate Director on the RSC's Matilda.

Lotte says: "I'm thrilled to be back at the SJT, having had such a great time directing The World Goes Round here last summer. We've been having a lot of fun in rehearsals and costume fittings for Di and Viv and Rose. I'm very excited to share this play with the SJT audience, as it's one of the most moving yet also hilarious plays I've come across in a long time."
