A Room of One’s Own by Virginia Woolf is a stage adaptation of Virginia Woolf’s classic essay of the same name, first delivered as a series of lectures in 1928, then published as an essay in 1929. In Peta Hanrahan’s dynamic version, four actors (three women and one man) play aspects of Virginia Woolf’s mind in conversation with herself and the audience. It’s playful and energetic, as well as gentle and questioning. The piece both debates and reflects on the history of gender disparity, while keeping Woolf’s striking use of metaphor and charming humour alive.
‘…witty, supple, and conducted in a spirit of restless inquiry, anchoring emotion with intellect, infusing argument with narrative technique.’ ★★★★ —The Age.
