Vita and Virginia
Luna Stage, 555 Valley Road, West Orange
Thursdays at 7:30pm, Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00pm, Sundays at 3:00pm
New Jersey Premiere of ‘Vita and Virginia’ by Eileen Atkins, adapted from correspondence between Virginia Woolf and Vita Sackville-West. Vita Sackville-West was a wealthy socialite and aspiring poet. Virginia Woolf was of more modest means, and widely considered to be a brilliant writer. Yet, these two women shared a long and complex relationship. Told mostly through letters that sparkle with wit and insight, Vita and Virginia sheds an intimate and provocative light on these two visionaries as they negotiate what it means to be a sexual woman in their respective worlds. Admission: $35
