Virginia Woolf's feminist essay is getting the theatrical treatment

In 1929, as part of her seminal work A Room of One’s Own, Virginia Woolf famously declared that “a woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction”. The essay, a call to arms for women to have literal and figurative spaces of their own if they are to participate in the male-dominated world of literature, almost instantly became a classic and is now considered one of the most influential feminist works of the 20th century. Back for a return season after a sold-out premiere production in 2016, Peta Hanrahan’s stage adaption promises to maintain the gentle wit and language of Woolf’s original essay, while drawing parallels to new feminist battlegrounds such as #MeToo and the fight for gender wage parity. It stars Anthea Davis, Marissa O’Reilly, Anna Kennedy and Jackson Trickett.
