Virginia Woolf: Killing the Angel

A new one-woman play with music that 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.

“Killing the Angel in the House … Had I not killed her she would have killed me.”

A new one-woman play with music that 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, ‘Killing the Angel’ reveals her troubled childhood and her views on literature, the Bloomsbury group, the challenges women face as artists and how women’s work has been omitted from histories of music and the arts.

‘Virginia Woolf: Killing the Angel’ is the latest collaboration between professional actor and classical singer, Lucy Stevens and pianist Elizabeth Marcus, a Fellow and Professor of Harpsichord at Guildhall School of Music, following their previous acclaimed plays about women in music.

Not only riveting but also very moving … your attention to the text both as an actor and a singer were pitched to perfection.’ Siva Oke Managing Director SOMM Recordings.

‘Superb acting and vocal performances... Funny, touching and uplifting - A must see!’ Light Music Society.
