Free Performance from Luna Stage’s New Play at the Library

West Orange Library will host the Luna Stage theater company on Monday, Oct 1 at 7pm for a scene from their fall play, Vita and Virginia.

Many people are familiar with author Virginia Woolf, whether from Nicole Kidman’s Oscar winning portrayal in the movie The Hours, or from reading famous works like A Room of One’s Own or Mrs. Dalloway.  No matter what you think you know, Luna Stage’s fall play Vita and Virginia will give you an entirely new perspective on Virginia Woolf.  The play examines Woolf through the prism of her friendship with socialite and poet Vita Sackville West.  You can get a free sneak preview when Luna Stage performs a scene from the play at West Orange Library on Monday, October 1 at 7pm.  Company members and performers will answer audience questions following the performance.   

Vita and Virginia is premiering in New Jersey at West Orange’s own theater company Luna Stage from September through October.  The play is written by Eileen Atkins and directed by Jane Mandel.  The two title roles are played by Kate Skinner and Mona Hennessy.  The story of the long and complex relationship between these two women is 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.  Reserve your seat the Library’s free sneak preview on-line at www.wopl.org or by calling 973-736-0198.
