A Room of One's Own by Virginia Woolf

Horsham Town Hall, 71 Pynsent Street, Horsham, Victoria, 3400
19 Aug 2019

In Sentient Theatre’s inaugural piece, we celebrate the beautiful literacy and conceptual genius of Virginia Woolf, one of the greatest writers of the 20th Century, and her classic work, A Room of One’s Own. Based on a series of lectures by Woolf in 1928 on the subject of women and fiction, this adaptation restructures the narrative to feature four performers who represent various aspects of Woolf’s mind in conversation with herself and the audience. The piece both energetically debates and gently reflects on the history of gender disparity, while keeping Woolf’s striking use of metaphor 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. Adapted and directed by Peta Hanrahan, it features performances by Carolyn Bock, Marissa O’Reilly, Jackson Trickett and Anna Kennedy. Today, with gender equality campaigns such as Me Too, Time’s Up and NOW Australia, this accessible production shines a light on history with astounding relevance to contemporary society.
