Connecting Virginia Woolf’s life and writing with songs written by her contemporaries Ethel Smyth, Liza Lehmann, Ina Boyle and Rebecca Clarke.

Classical singer and actor Lucy Stevens and pianist Elizabeth Marcus explore the lives, influences and boundaries of creative women in Edwardian and inter-war Britain. This talk, illustrated with songs selected from the play Virginia Woolf: Killing the Angel, explores the friendship, choices and synergy of their work.
