fortyfivedownstairs and La Mama present Sentient Theatre’s production of A Room of One’s Own by Virginia Woolf, adapted for the stage and directed by Peta Hanrahan.

Following a sold-out premiere season in 2016, Sentient Theatre’s stage adaptation of Virginia Woolf’s classic essay returns. Breathing new life into the history of women and literature, this production features four performers as aspects of Woolf’s mind in conversation with herself and the audience. 

Today, with campaigns such as Me Too, Time’s Up and NOW Australia, ‘A Room of One’s Own by Virginia Woolf’ shines a light on our history with astounding relevance to contemporary society.  

This luminous, accessible production captures the beauty of Woolf’s prose and the complexity of her ideas [and] gives her potent words vivid voice.
