Letter To Larry
Jermyn Street Theatre
4 – 22 August, 2015
In a year that sees a host of events about England’s first female Hollywood star, Vivien Leigh returns to the West End this summer.
Following the centenary year of her birth and chiming with the new Vivien archive at the V&A, the Vivien season at the BFI and the Starring Vivien Leigh exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery, Letter To Larry brings the very essence of the celebrated actress to Jermyn Street Theatre over August after its critically acclaimed world premiere in Paris.
2015 marks 50 years since Vivien Leigh was last on an English stage, and 50 years since her final film, yet the extraordinary life and work of the woman forever remembered as Scarlett O’Hara, continues to fascinate.
Donald Macdonald’s play Letter to Larry is an insightful exploration into the life and love of one of the twentieth century’s most glamorous yet vulnerable icons of stage and screen.
When Laurence Olivier asks her for a divorce, Vivien’s response creates a worldwide sensation, and although she says she will ‘naturally do whatever he wishes”, she is determined to win him back.
When a new revelation takes her to the edge, she fights for his love – and her life. But is it too late?
Letter To Larry reveals intimate truths about the actress with immediacy and intrigue and demonstrates how, amid heartbreak and tragedy, she retains her humour and magic.
Written by award-winning playwright Donald Macdonald, and starring Susie Lindeman, the production is a new collaboration with video artist Mic Gruchy and Cal McCrystal as stage director.
