Di and Viv and Rose: ★★★★ from The Evening Standard

Di and Viv and Rose Review
By Fiona Mountford, The Evening Standard

Edward Hall’s spritely new-broom regime at Hampstead continues to flourish, with this first transfer of a play from the experimental Downstairs studio into the main house. Amelia Bullmore’s three-hander is a big, warm-hearted piece about female friendship which doesn’t — as friends don’t — shy away from occasional hard-hitting home truths.

The unwavering joy throughout, though, comes from the performances and chemistry between the three. Maxwell Martin, showing a hitherto unexplored aptitude for scatty comedy, is delightful as wide-eyed Rose and McKee’s enigmatic Modigliani face is ideal for Viv’s deep-buried passions.
