Havisham

Written and Performed by Award winning actress Heather Alexander Direction & Dramaturg by Dominique Gerrard Woolf lives! Award winning actress, Heather Alexander, courageously and masterfully inhabits the soul, spirit and voice of Virginia Woolf as she breathes the freshest of air into the essence of A Room of One’s Own. In a powerful and wittily provocative dramatic interpretation of Woolf’s creative process, the audience share to her frustrations and dreams as we are lead on intimate journey from study, lecture hall, British Museum and Oxbridge. We share Woolf’s insights and her biting humour as she reflects on the courage and tenacity of female writers. The text remains stunningly relevant today as it commands us to reflect upon what has and what has not changed! All the famous passages are here including the utterly heart-breaking story of Shakespeare's sister. It is a searing testament to the significance of the Bechdel Test, many years early. A powerful, humane and often funny exploration of an extraordinary woman.
