"I THINK IT'S A MEMBER OF THE HOUSE OF LORDS PROTESTING AGAINST THE DEMOLITION OF VIVIEN"
The cartoon shows Vivien Leigh as Lavinia in Titus Andronicus. During the run - on 11 July 1957 - she interrupted a debate in the House of Lords by standing up and declaiming "My lords, I wish to protest against the St James's Theatre being demolished." Leigh and Olivier led a nationwide campaign to save the theatre, but to no avail.
Signed and dated l.r.: "Osbert L '57"
