Jermyn Street Theatre

Vivien's centenary: Nov 5 2013 The Actors Church

 

Following the Paris World Premiere season in 2013, and special performances celebrating Vivien Leigh’s 100th anniversary, Donald Macdonald's new VIVIEN: Letter to Larry plays Jermyn Street Theatre’s inaugural Matinee Seasons, in Autumn 2014, starring Susie Lindeman.

VIVIEN: Letter to Larry brings to vivid life the making, and breaking, of Vivien Leigh. In 1960, while starring in Duel Of Angels on Broadway, she receives a letter from Laurence Olivier asking for a divorce. Her response creates a worldwide sensation, but a new revelation takes her to the edge.  Her past flies into focus as she flights for his love…..and her life.

The season previews from Sept 29, 2.30 pm to inaugurate Jermyn Street Theatre’s Matinee Seasons, and plays till Nov 5- Vivien’s 101st birthday.

Chiming with the BFI Vivien Leigh season, the current Starring Vivien Leigh room at the NPG,  the high-profile acquisition of Vivien’s archive by the V&A, and this autumn's 75th Anniversary of Gone With The Wind , this visceral play VIVIEN:Letter To Larry brings the spirit of Vivien back to the West End .“I’m dedicated to theatre. Always have been and always shall. So there” Vivien Leigh.
