Virginia Woolf: Killing the Angel

24 Oct – Blackheath Halls London. “Superb production … from conception to enactment, and represents the best of live theatre! What a joy!” Hilary De Santos

14 Oct – Theatre Royal Winchester, Jewry Street, Winchester. “a most extraordinary evening … challenging, enlightening, entertaining, chilling, informative, alluring, beautiful, funny and deeply inspiring … like floating on top of a wave – joyous one moment and dashed onto the pebbles the next. We felt drawn into [Virginia Woolf’s] stream of consciousness – sometimes playful, sometimes heart-rending.” Helen Williams

Ethel Smyth: Grasp the NettleVirginia Woolf: an Illustrated Talk with SongsVirginia Woolf: Killing the Angel

July 12 – 15 Deal Music Arts Festival 2021 “Each festival we have a few things that stand out and this year, without doubt, [Ethel Smyth: Grasp the Nettle & Virginia Woolf: Killing the Angel] have made a profound impression.  It is as if we were in the presence of these great ladies.  Elizabeth sensitive accompanying was utterly brilliant, thus heightening the dramatic impact hugely.  An experience that will stay with us for a long time to come … Informing us about the need to champion the music and art of women far more boldly.  Times are changing … Thank you for helping make that change so magnificently.” Paul Max Edlin Artistic Director Deal Music & Arts

October 24 & 25Bloomsbury Festival – Holy Cross Church, London WC1 “I’m buzzing after seeing Lucy Stevens new play #KillingtheAngel. The script is entirely extracted from Virginia Woolf’s novels, essays & life writing, with insight into Woolf’s groundbreaking feminist work in the context of her patriarchal upbringing. Don’t miss this!!!” Lana Bode

March 15 – North London Lauderdale House, Highgate Hill, London “This was such a great show @ontourwithlucy amazing performance as Virginia Woolf and well deserved standing ovation @LauderdaleHouse Mrs Shaw Herself

March – Stamford Arts Centre St Mary’s Street, Stamford, Lincs. “Dramatic and informative telling of this compelling story. The music included a wide variety of songs, Lucy with a warm, rich contralto voice and even an extract from Beethoven’s opus 111 piano sonata, beautifully played by Liz Marcus.  I came away with new insights into the complex character of one of our literary greats and enthused to read and learn more”. Martin Fellows

March – Redbridge Drama Centre, East London “A stunning piece of research, writing, acting singing and production – and unearthing some little known aspects of VW’s life. A valuable contribution. Brava” Janet Gibson, Convenor of the Opera All Party Parliamentary Group
