A Room of One's Own by Virginia Woolf
A Sentient Theatre Production
“This luminous, accessible production captures the beauty of Woolf’s prose and the complexity of her ideas [and] gives her potent words vivid voice.”
Following a sold-out premiere season in 2016, Peta Hanrahan's stage adaptation, 'A Room of One's Own by Virginia Woolf' returns to fortyfivedownstairs, Melbourne in July 2019, followed by a tour throughout regional Victoria in August 2019.
Sentient Theatre's production breathes new life into the history of women and literature in this adaptation of Virginia Woolf's classic 1929 essay. Adapted and directed by Peta Hanrahan, 'A Room of One’s Own by Virginia Woolf' features four performers as aspects of Virginia Woolf’s mind in conversation with herself and the audience.
The work explores gender disparity from an historical perspective, delivering the main themes and ideas from the essay to present-day audiences, while keeping Woolf's language intact and charming humour alive.
Today, with campaigns such as Me Too, Time’s Up and NOW Australia, ‘A Room of One’s Own by Virginia Woolf’ shines a light on our history with astounding relevance to contemporary society.
