Vita and Virginia
by Eileen Atkins
Feb – Mar, 2004
Bay Area Premiere
Virginia Woolf and Vita Sackville-West, members of the illustrious Bloomsbury set, met at a dinner party in 1922 and began a relationship that lasted over 20 years. Their revelatory letters to one another chronicle their extraordinary friendship. As a playwright, Eileen Atkins astutely harvests the Woolf/Sackville-West correspondence and diaries so that the written words come alive as real conversations between two deeply connected individuals.
