Family isn't just the most important thing in life -- it's everything. This powerful play follows the struggles of a family trying to hold on through the teenage years of the two children, a typical daughter and a severely autistic son. Eighteen-year-old Josh throws everything out of balance on a normal day. When a relative comes to visit, everyone loses equilibrium completely as they each try to do what's best for the family while still pursuing what's best for themselves. Learn More

Interesting. Great acting-a real tour de force.
Quotes & Highlights
- "It’s hard to imagine anybody inhabiting the role more convincingly than soap opera veteran Judith Chapman. Her mastery of Leigh’s mannerisms -- that cat-that-got-the-cream smile, that icy stare, that lilting voice -- is uncanny." --Los Angeles Times
- "Actor Judith Chapman and director Elina de Santos offer much to savor in this smart and elegant showcase ... [Vivien] strikes a perfect balance between surveying her career and illuminating the joys and despair she experienced. This is a bravura performance, through and through." --Back Stage (Critic's Pick)
- "It's passionate, theatrical and thoroughly engaging as Chapman and Leigh connect on more than one plateau. She lives and breathes this role, as hers is a dexterously physical and brilliantly impassioned tour-de-force performance. Vivien is not to be missed!" --broadwayworld.com
- "This is simply terrific. What an extraordinary piece of writing. Rick Foster's range of understanding and recreating Vivien amazed and moved me with every page; all so marvelously in character." —Tarquin Olivier, Vivien Leigh's Stepson
