ROOM
  • Brighton Fringe

It is 1929. An androgynous figure cuts a haunting shape in the shadows of Oxbridge. Scorned, ordered off the path; then refused entry to the library. Why? Woolf demands answers. None can be found.Woolf prowls the streets of London at dusk. A thousand thoughts consume her. Why is it fatal for a writer to reflect on their sex? Who can measure the violence of the poets heart when tangled in a womans body? What if Shakespeare had an equally gifted sister?Woolf unflinchingly interrogates the injustice she encounters. Witty. Relevant. Provocatively funny. Woolf slices through notions of gender disparity with an incisive mix of charm and venom.'Alexanders electric performance was a powerful depiction of Woolfs challenging words against the patriarchy and the social injustices women have long suffered for centuries.' (Jessica Morgan, deputy editor, The Face 2021)

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.
