It started as a lecture to a group of women in the nineteen-twenties, and became one of the finest pieces of writing in the last hundred years. Wise, witty, passionate, incisive, the story of women writers and the rooms in which they write.
Carissa Licciardello’s impressive mainstage debut brought the famous essay into bold theatrical clarity, with a virtuosic central performance by Anita Hegh. Now a limited chance for those who missed out.

★★★★ “It’s hard to think of a play better adapted for these unusual times.”– Time Out Sydney
★★★★½ “… [Anita] Hegh illuminates the poeticism and catches the shifting tempo and vehemence of ideas so well that you hang off each new thought like a jilted lover waiting for the phone to ring.”- The Sydney Morning Herald
“… Hegh is superb… Attuned to Woolf’s anger, sarcasm and wit, she finds lovely moments of humour. Most importantly, she captures the brilliant, supple way that Woolf’s mind weaves around her subject.” – Limelight
“A superb text for performance.” – THE AUSTRALIAN
