adapted by Hal Coase
Below the surface of a single day in the life of Clarissa Dalloway lie all the choices that made her the person that she is. In Hal Coase’s adaptation of Virginia Woolf’s celebrated novel, time is fluid, and memories and thoughts have as much life as present action, as Clarissa’s story intertwines in strange ways with the story of Septimus Warren Smith, a shellshocked veteran of the First World War. Dive in.
“We’re thrilled to be presenting the U.S. premiere of MRS. DALLOWAY,” says artistic director Rebecca Maxfield. “Hal Coase’s adaptation really captures the spirit of Woolf’s book, but at the same time it’s incredibly theatrical.”
