Orson’s Shadow

Sir Laurence Olivier. Orson Welles. Vivien Leigh. Joan Plowright. Kenneth Tynan. When these brilliant, neurotic champions of the theatre get together to rehearse Ionesco’s Rhinoceros, mere mortals best step aside.

Orson’s Shadow by Austin Pendleton stars Caroline Goodall as Joan Plowright, Glenne Headly as Vivien Leigh, Martin Jarvis as Laurence Olivier, Robert Machray as Orson Welles, and Simon Templeman as Kenneth Tynan. With Orlando Seale as Sean. Live sound effects by Gigi Garcia. Recorded and mixed by David Kelly for Voicebox Studios. Our director is Rosalind Ayres.
