The Tower Theatre performing at Theatro Technis, Camden

Di is doing business studies and excels at sport. Rose is studying the history of art and loves to cook exotic meals. Viv is a sociologist who dresses in the fashions of the 1940s. Three eighteen year olds with nothing in common except an unbounded zest for life team up in their first term at university. Together they are invincible in the face of everything that student life throws at them, but how does such an intense relationship survive in the post-graduation world? Amelia Bullmore's funny and unsentimental exploration of female friendship is as thought-provoking as it is entertaining.
