Welcome to Retford Little Theatre


Next Production: Di and Viv and Rose

by Amelia Bullmore

Friday 20th March until Friday 27th March 2020, 7:30pm

“How do you want to live here? I mean we could come and go and lead separate lives. Or we could really live together. What do you think?” Three women join forces. Life is fun. Living is intense. Together they feel unassailable. Crackling with wisdom and wit, Div and Viv and Rose is a humorous and thoughtful exploration of friendship’s impact on life and life’s impact on friendship. Di and Viv and Rose charts the steady but sometimes chaotic progression of these three women’s lives and their ultimately enduring bonds. The varied journeys of their lives take their toll on the characters, forcing them apart and stretching their relationships with each other to near breaking point.

Review: Bothered and Bewildered

Bothered and Bewildered is described by its writer as a ‘comedy drama’; in fact, it is a clear exposé of the devastation of dementia – the bewilderment of the sufferer and the effect on the family – and that makes for a tragic story with some comic relief. This is a very challenging play, and Keri Duffy, who has not produced at the theatre before, has risen to the challenge splendidly.
