“Such a great show … amazing performance as Virginia Woolf and well deserved standing ovation” March ’20
Weaves the life of Virginia Woolf, as expressed in her own words, with music and songs by female composers who were her contemporaries – much of which is out of print and rarely performed. Through Woolf’s writing, it reveals her troubled childhood and her views on literature, Bloomsbury and the challenges women face as artists.
“Lucy is a remarkable performer the way she can go into and out of song and dramatic monologue is just amazing.” Dr Debbie Challis LSE Library
★ ★ ★ ★ “Lucy Stevens as Ferrier, capturing the singer’s radiant personality most winningly…always at home in the Ferrier songbook, the warmth in her own voice, matching to a large degree Ferrier’s own contralto, causes a frisson in the audience.” – Adrian Edwards Musical Theatre Review
“A remarkable performance, with
magical, deeply touching moments – the audience spellbound, the recitations beautifully delivered and subtly interwoven with the songs – some well known, others less familiar and fresh. Lauderdale House 2017
“Another triumphant performance!! Brilliant singing and accompaniment.” Nick Barnes, Chairman Cambridge The Arts Society, South Cambs.
“An amazing and important story presented up close and personal by the immensely talented dramatist and contralto Lucy Stevens. This will make your soul sing.” – Rob Webb, founder Quietrevolution
