Virginia Woolf’s trip through the history of literature, creativity and sexual politics.
The award-winning creators of Austen’s Women, Female Gothic and Christmas Gothic return with a twenty-first century take on Virginia Woolf’s celebrated pre-TED talk.
Take a wry, amusing, and incisive trip through the history of literature, feminism, and gender. Meet Charlotte Brontë, Jane Austen, Aphra Behn, and Shakespeare’s sister – Judith! Travel to the far-flung future of… 2028. But whatever you do, Keep Off the Grass.
Rebecca Vaughan (Dalloway, Orlando, Austen’s Women, Jane Eyre: An Autobiography) performs Woolf’s 1928 exploration of the impact of poverty and sexual inequality on intellectual freedom and creativity.
Previous Dyad shows at The Swallow Theatre include Female Gothic (2021), Orlando (2019), Jane Eyre: An Autobiography (2017), Christmas Gothic (2016), Dalloway (2016).
