A warm, funny and sad play about friendship, with three great roles for female performers.

Aged 18, three women meet at university and join forces. Life is fun. Living is intense. Crackling with wisdom and wit, Di and Viv and Rose is a humorous and thoughtful exploration of friendship's impact on life and life's impact on friendship.

We follow them from free-and-easy student life to loves, careers, cares and responsibilities over 25 years later.

The three characters take us on this journey and have a playing age 18 - 40's.

PLEASE NOTE: We are auditioning these plays and Regina Monologues / In Camera (Huis Clos) on the same day to give you the opportunity to be considered for any of them. As the rehearsal periods overlap it will not be possible to be in more than one production.

These are open auditions. Please read the auditions page if you have never auditioned with the GST before.
