Virginia Woolf’s Mrs. Dalloway

July 15, 16, 17

In the Environmental Cooperative at the Vassar Barns

Adapted & Directed by Mark William Lindberg

Virginia Woolf's Mrs. Dalloway juxtaposes the life of socialite Clarissa Dalloway the day she is giving an important party with the life of traumatized WWI veteran Septimus Warren Smith the day he is driven to suicide. Written in the early 1920s during the aftermath of WWI, Woolf's prescient novel explores privilege, queerness, and what we would now call PTSD but was known at the time as "shell shock." In this world premiere adaptation by queer fiction author Mark William Lindberg, Woolf's gorgeous and pointed text flows from a chorus of 15 young actors from The Training Company.

In the event of inclement weather, the performance will be presented onsite, inside the newly revovated barn.
