Based on the acclaimed novel by Susan Sellers, Elizabeth Wright’s innovative new play is a moving, poetic and powerful story about the remarkable sisters, novelist Virginia Woolf and artist Vanessa Bell.
Our faces are imperfect replicas of each other, as if the painter were trying to capture the same person from different angles. - Vanessa Bell
Fusing original music and poetic text, the play creates a dream-like, meditative quality, moving gracefully through time and seamlessly transporting the audience through places, events and memories. The play is enhanced by an interwoven projected backdrop of evolving images, inspired by paintings by Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant.
Directed by Emma Gersch, and produced by award- winning theatre company Moving Stories, Vanessa and Virginia opened in Provence in September 2010, and toured across the UK and Europe, in advance of coming home to London for its Riverside run.
