News: Rehearsal images released for V and V

Rehearsal images have been released for V&V, which tells the iconic love story of literary treasure Virginia Woolf and esteemed socialite Vita Sackville-West, alongside a modern narrative of Lottie from Tunbridge Wells and love cynic Mia. Shortlisted for the Charlie Hartill Theatre Reserve 2019, V&V now makes its debut at VAULT Festival 2020 exploring communication then and now.

Through carefully crafted letters that were anticipated with relish, Vita Sackville-West and Virginia Woolf began an exquisite romance almost a century ago. They conquered each other’s hearts with wit and elegance inked onto a page. Luckily, their husbands didn’t mind.

Today, in the overwhelmingly tangled world of dating apps, Mia and Lottie meet online, flirting through the beam of a phone screen. When an emoji can change not just the tone of the conversation but its entire meaning, reading between the lines becomes a whole new challenge.

V & V plays at the VAULT Festival from 3 – 8 March.
