Adapting Woolf

  • Engine Room 58 View Street Bendigo, VIC, 3550 Australia (map)

Peta Hanrahan, Anna Kennedy

It’s 90 years since Virginia Woolf’s short work, A Room of One’s Own, sent out a rally call to women everywhere, to fight for the right to create. Peta Hanrahan’s stage adaptation – presented at Bendigo Writers Festival following its triumphant 2016 season in Melbourne - brings this now classic text right up to date, showing us its rich resources with exhilarating effect. Why was Woolf’s essay so important? How do you adapt such a perfect piece of writing to the stage? Hanrahan talks to producer and actor Anna Kennedy about her adaptation, and the impact of this performance on audiences - from those who love the original text to those who meet it for the first time in performance.
