Mel Edison lives in an average New York apartment with his loving wife Edna. He’s got an average job, average clothes, average TV… Life’s just ticking along until the day he gets fired. Money becomes scarce, opportunities for a man chasing 50 are even more scarce and all this in the midst of a 1970’s heatwave when the temperatures roaring and the economy is crashing.
Left with no choice but to pace the boards of his shrinking apartment, Mel’s mind begins to fall apart and it’s up to Edna to try and keep it all together.
It’s 1984 and, as the artist Prince says, ‘Let’s Go Crazy’. This witty, heart-warming and moving play features three fun-loving young women, house-sharing for the first time. They are each very different but it isn’t long before they are living in each other’s pockets. Together they can do anything.
But life has unexpected plans for them as their story unfolds over the next 25 years.
Di and Viv and Rose is a thoughtful exploration of friendship’s impact on life, and life’s impact on friendship.
Box Office opens 25th May.
The tale of a sweet innocent old lady, alone in her home, pitted against a gang of criminal misfits who will stop at nothing. Based on the classic Ealing comedy.
