Tom and Viv
TS Eliot. A shy American graduate in Oxford.
Vivienne Haigh-Wood. A sparkling socialite of vivacious intelligence and erratic behaviour.
Together they plunge hastily into a marriage that is doomed from the start, a relationship that 32 years later ends with Tom a writer of international renown and Viv incarcerated in an asylum.
Michael Hasting’s controversial, sensitive and pointedly amusing play presents the fiery relationship of the poet and his muse, reveals the social ambition and resolve of one of the 20th century’s most acclaimed writers, and exposes the cruelty of the English class system and establishment in its treatment of a physically and mentally sick woman.
