A new one-woman play with music on the life of Virginia Woolf told in her own words and woven with music and songs written by her contemporaries, Ethel Smyth, Maude Valerie White and Liza Lehmann - “A library where the songs of the singers rise naturally from the lives of the livers.” Virginia Woolf. A new play with music exploring this influential 20th century writer, the social and creative networks of professional women and the challenges they faced as artists in the early twentieth century.
‘Virginia Woolf: Killing the Angel’ is the latest collaboration between singer/actor Lucy Stevens and pianist Elizabeth Marcus following their highly acclaimed previous plays about women in music: ‘Ethel Smyth: Grasp the Nettle’ “Superb acting and vocal performances...Funny, touching and uplifting - A must see!” Light Music Society. ‘Kathleen Ferrier: Whattalife!’ “…superbly gifted, Lucy Stevens, with a voice of this calibre, it would be easy for a singer to indulge, but Whattalife! is a seamless balance of speech and music” localsecrets.com
