About the Show Less...

The true story of the relationship between TS Eliot and his first wife Vivienne Haigh-Wood. Read More >

It is Cambridge, 1915, and Tom, and awkward American graduate, meets Viv. Enchanted with each other, the couple are sucked into a whirlwind romance, but as Tom begins to become successful in the field of literature, Viv’s volatility becomes a problem rather than a quirk. Their swift marriage turns into an impossible love story.

Playwright Michael Hastings’s other plays include For The West (Uganda), Lee Harvey Oswald, Full Frontal and Calico. In his career to date he has received an Oscar nomination, an Emmy and an Evening Standard Award.
