A Room Of One's Own

The award-winning creators of Christmas Gothic, Female Gothic, Austen’s Women, and I, Elizabeth return with a twenty-first century take on Virginia Woolf’s celebrated pre-TED talk.

Take a wry, amusing, and incisive trip through the history of literature, feminism, and gender.  Meet Charlotte Brontë, Jane Austen, Aphra Behn, and Shakespeare’s sister – Judith! Travel to the far-flung future of… 2028.  But whatever you do, Keep Off the Grass.

Rebecca Vaughan (DallowayOrlando, Christmas Gothic, Austen’s WomenJane Eyre: An Autobiography) performs Woolf’s 1928 exploration of the impact of poverty and sexual inequality on intellectual freedom and creativity.
