WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Rogue Machine presents Rick Foster's Vivien, a journey into the triumph and madness of Vivien Leigh. Stage and television series regular Judith Chapman portrays the fragile and mercurial movie star Vivien Leigh in the Los Angeles premiere of this critically acclaimed one-woman play. Elina de Santos, Rogue Machine co-artistic director, will direct. Proceeds will benefit Rogue Machine. Opening in a darkened theatre, the play is an illuminating journey beyond Vivien Leigh's triumphs into the madness that tortured her all of her life, as she reflects on her tumultuous relationship with actor Laurence Olivier and her tragic battles with manic depression and tuberculosis. Leigh expresses her insecurities, despite winning two Oscars for her "Southern Belle" performances in Gone with the Wind and A Streetcar Named Desire. Other highlights of the play are Leigh's frank, often humorous conversations with the people who touched her most, including friend and confidante Katharine Hepburn, Winston Churchill, Olivier, co-star and lover Peter Finch and the critic Kenneth Tynan, whose harsh stage reviews haunted the actress throughout her career.
