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.

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 our history with astounding relevance to contemporary society.

If you want to understand what is happening in the world today, this is the perfect place to start.

Written by Virginia Woolf. Adapted by Peta Hanrahan.
