Immersive theatre experience makes meeting Virginia Woolf possible
Bloomsbury Collective is thrilled to announce their premiere of A Room of One’s Own, an immersive production lead by an all female cast and crew where participants step into Cambridge, 1928, to see Virginia Woolf (Naomi Wright) deliver her iconic text for the very first time. The production runs November 13-24, 2013 at The Campbell House Museum.
Guests enjoy a reception of live music, cash bar and light refreshments. For the first hour of each performance, guests are invited to explore Girton College where Virginia Woolf made one of her two addresses. This interactive production allows the audience to explore the library, read newspapers from 1928 and gain insight into the political climate of the time. In addition, guests will get a glimpse into Woolf’s complicated personal life by perusing her quarters and reading her letters and diary.
