We would watch *the hell* out of this
A stage show of the real-life Wagatha Christie Trial is a real thing and it's coming to Dublin! The Rebekah Vardy vs Colleen Rooney Show will be put on in The Gaiety Theatre and tickets are going on sale next Friday.
It's one of those moments in history that we all remember where we were on the 9th of October 2019 when we read those iconic words: "It's ...........Rebekah Vardy's account."
This has been a burden in my life for a few years now and finally I have got to the bottom of it...... pic.twitter.com/0YqJAoXuK1

Rebekah Vardy denied she'd been leaking these stories and took Colleen Rooney to court for defamation.
The trial, which took place over Summer 2022, undoubtedly produced some of the most entertaining court transcripts of all time. The information that Rebekah Vardy couldn't produce the phone that contained the conversations between her and her assistant because it's at the bottom of the North Sea is one for the books.
Now some bright people have had the idea to take those court transcripts and adapt it into a play! It opened in Wydnham's Theatre in London and will go on tour across the UK and Ireland.
In the production, Rebekah Vardy will be played by Lucy May Barker, and Coleen Rooney will be played by Laura Dos Santos.
If this sounds like the show for you, tickets go on sale this Friday the 10th of March! See you in the front row 😂
