Virginia Woolf's masterpiece of modernism is brought vividly to dramatic life by Ireland’s foremost playwright Marina Carr in a world premiere from award-winning director Annabelle Comyn. Filmed on The Everyman stage this digital capture of the stage production will be broadcast as part of the Cork Midsummer Festival. On demand video stream.
Woolf’s text is written in a form where thoughts and emotions are foregrounded. Marina Carr’s adaptation captures the constant flux of the characters’ inner thoughts and re-imagines them in a theatrical landscape. It recalls childhood emotions and highlights emptiness and yearning in adult relationships. Among the play’s many themes are those of loss, subjectivity, the nature of art, unity, and the problem of perception.
