Virginia Woolf's

Mrs Dalloway

A new adaptation by Hal Coase

Directed by Thomas Bailey

On a single day in 1920s London, 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.
