A Room of One’s Own

Date: 15 Mar 2021

What started as a lecture to a roomful of students became an essay, became a book, became a seismic wave.

Virginia Woolf’s 1929 classic description of the need for new spaces and a complete redefinition of who owns our storymaking is by turns wise, amusing, incendiary and poetic. Rippling with passion, one of the finest pieces of writing in the last hundred years, with the distinct talents of Anita Hegh walking Woolf’s tightrope of thought and feeling.

Adapted for the stage by Carissa Licciardello and Tom Wright, this is a virtuosic central performance by Anita Hegh.
