A new play sheds light on an age-old issue. A Room of One's Own by Virginia Woolf is a gently challenging, provocative and intelligent reflection on gender disparity. Sentient Theatre's production breathes new life into the history of women and literature in this stage adaptation of Woolf's 1929 essay. Adapted and directed by Peta Hanrahan, A Room of One's Own by Virginia Woolf features four performers - Anthea Davis, Anna Kennedy, Jackson Trickett and Marissa O'Reilly - as aspects of Woolf's mind in conversation with herself and the audience.
