Tom & Viv is a 1984 play by British playwright, Michael Hastings, which tells the story of the relationship between the American poet, T. S. Eliot, and his first wife, Vivienne Haigh-Wood Eliot. They were married in 1915 after a brief courtship, and separated in 1933 though they never divorced.[1]

In 1994, a film by the same name was directed by Brian Gilbert and starred Willem Dafoe, Miranda Richardson, Rosemary Harris, Tim Dutton and Nickolas Grace. It was nominated for Academy Awards for Best Actress in a Leading Role (Miranda Richardson) and Best Actress in a Supporting Role (Rosemary Harris).
