Arcola Theatre and Forward Arena today announce the full cast for Virginia Woolf’s Mrs Dalloway, a new adaptation by Hal Coase. Thomas Bailey, co-Artistic Director of Forward Arena, directs Emma D’Arcy (Rezia), Sean Jackson (Peter), Clare Lawrence Moody (Sally), Clare Perkins (Clarissa) and Guy Rhys (Septimus). The production opens at Arcola Theatre on 1 October, with previews from 25 September and runs until 20 October.
On a single day in London, 1923, Clarissa Dalloway prepares to throw a party for her high-society friends.
On the same day, in the same city, First World War veteran Septimus Warren Smith seeks help from the ruling class that Clarissa entertains.
Forward Arena present a fast-paced, dynamic staging of Hal Coase’s bold new version of Mrs Dalloway renewing the collaboration between the company and Hal Coase following their previous production of Callisto: a queer epic at Edinburgh Festival Fringe and Arcola Theatre.
