Three fun-loving students
Aged 18 and house-sharing for the first time
It’s 1984 and as Prince says ‘Let’s Go Crazy’
Aged eighteen, three women join forces at university. Life is fun. Life is intense. Together they feel unbeatable. As Di and Viv and Rose grow up, chance and choice put their closeness to the test. They must thrash out how to work, how to love, how to live.
This hilarious and heart-warming hit comedy that won over audiences for two sell-out runs at Hampstead Theatre is now on sale for a limited run from January 22 at the Vaudeville Theatre, starring three award-winning actresses; Tamzin Outhwaite (Sweet Charity, New Tricks for TV) Samantha Spiro (Hello Dolly! [Olivier Award] at the Open Air Theatre and Psychobitches for TV) and Jenna Russell (Born and Bred for TV, Sunday in the Park with George [Olivier Award]).
Amelia Bullmore, prolific writer for TV and radio and creator and star of ITV’s Scott & Bailey has written this effervescent and sharply-observed comedy which poses the question…
‘Can the friends we make at 18 really stand the test of time?’
Life is full of surprises…

Other Hampstead Downstairs Productions have transferred to the West End and toured regionally and internationally.Read more

Cabaret, Chicago, Kiss of the Spiderwoman, The Rink, 70 Girls 70 - the list of Kander and Ebb’s hit musicals is legendary and their hits from the shows are universally known and loved.
In this collection of their songs, show-stoppers like New York, New York, All That Jazz and Money, Money appear alongside the touching drama, sharp observation and witty humour of songs such as Maybe This Time, Mr Cellophane, Arthur in the Afternoon and Coffee in a Cardboard Cup. The very best of Kander and Ebb, all in one go.
With a glamorous, New York-inspired set, the show will set pulses racing among fans of Kander and Ebb and of musicals generally.

Mike is played by Geoff Leesley and is devoted to the boat at the expense of all around him. Ruth, played by Charlie Hardwick, his long suffering wife, dreams of retiring to Cornwall and running a guest house whilst her husband takes tourists for trips round the bay in his boat. The youngest son Luke, played by Neil Grainger, has been coerced into the boat by his lifeboat obsessed father, but would rather be carving wood sculptures and living with his girlfriend Helen played by Niky Wardley. Throw into this equation the eldest son Sam, played by James Weaver, just back from America and unsure whether he wants to return, and the daughter Jo played by Alison Mac who wants just to get away, preferably to Tahiti to learn to dive.Read more
