    We are delighted to announce our theatre is reopening for A Room Of One’s Own, our first production in six months. In this COVID age theatre is a little different. We are operating according to strict COVID-Safe guidelines, which means a reduced capacity in order to allow for social distancing.

    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.

    A teacher once told me work by and about women is usually only small and domestic, never bold or formally radical. He’d obviously never read this (or seen our production). – Carissa Licciardello
