About This Show

Vivien, brings to the forefront the life of one of the most renowned actresses of our time, Vivien Leigh. Though best known on screen as, Scarlett O’Hara and Blanche DuBois she had a position of absolute ascendancy on the British stage as the co-star and wife of Laurence Olivier. Yet she pursued her life on a self-destructive course. A victim of manic depression, her hold on sanity seemed to only come from the roles she played. And at a time when the illness was little understood, her only recourse was to endure years of electroshock therapy. And at the age of 53 died of tuberculosis.
