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.”
'A Room of One's Own by Virginia Woolf' is a gently challenging, provocative and intelligent reflection on a subject no one on this planet can avoid.
Sentient Theatre's production breathes new life into the history of women and literature in this stage adaptation of Virginia Woolf's 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.
'A Room of One’s Own by Virginia Woolf' had a sold-out premiere season at La Mama Courthouse in 2016. Today, with gender equality campaigns such as Me Too, Time’s Up and NOW Australia, this accessible production shines a light on our history with astounding relevance to contemporary society.
