At last some good news! We are delighted to present three events at The OSO Arts Centre in Barnes, starting on 10 June with “bewitching” pianist Mei-Ting, playing music by Beethoven and Bartok.
On 8 July we bring ‘Cocktails With Vivien’ to The OSO for the first time. This new show, developed out of our hugely popular ‘An Evening With Vivien Leigh’, enjoyed sell-out performances at Crazy Coqs in Soho last autumn.
‘Cocktails With Vivien’ celebrates the life and career of stage and screen actress Vivien Leigh (Oscar-winning Gone With The Wind, A Streetcar Named Desire) in music and words. We will be presenting two shows, at 7pm and 9pm, as we expect these performances to be very popular.
With a narrative written and delivered by renowned playwright and performer Graham Roos, and music and songs performed by Carole Ashby and Sam Jewison, this enchanting show, presented on the anniversary of Vivien’s death, is sure to delight fans of Vivien Leigh everywhere.
Dedicated to Trader Faulkner, Vivien’s friend and fellow actor.
“A moving, magical portrait of one of our greatest actresses” (audience member at debut show)
‘Divine Fire’, one of our most enduring and popular music and words productions, comes to the OSO on 22 July. Performed by Viv McLean (piano) and Susan Porrett (narrator) and interwoven with some of Chopin’s loveliest piano works, Divine Fire traces the relationship between Fryderyk Chopin and the authoress George Sand, from their first meeting in Paris in 1836 until their parting in 1849.
Tickets for all shows cost £15 and are on sale now. All performances will be covid-secure.
