A Room of One’s Own

Date: 4 Mar 2020

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 production marks the reopening of Belvoir.

“This has been the longest six months in Belvoir’s history, but we are back doing what we live for and it feels utterly lovely,” says Belvoir’s Artistic Director Eamon Flack. “Of course theatre in Covid times will be a little different, but theatre has always found its way and it will find its way with masks and social distancing. Artists and audiences together will discover a new and temporary normal for the experience of theatregoing. Nothing can stop the human need to gather for stories. It’s that simple”.
