“I regret that you have been in bed, though not with me.”
Through carefully crafted letters that are awaited with anticipation, Vita Sackville-West and Virginia Woolf begin an exquisite romance. Filled with sharp intelligence, wit and elegance, both iconic women’s letters conquer each other’s hearts through carefully chosen words inked onto a page.
“You’re the first person I’ve seen on this app which isn’t posing with a dog, a baby, or in your bra.”
In the overwhelmingly tangled world of dating apps Mia and Lottie meet online. Flirting through the beam of a phone screen, they navigate many challenges, including kiss politics: two x’s or three? When an emoji can change not just the tone of the conversation but the entire meaning of what you write, reading between the lines takes on a whole new meaning.
“It is a brilliant show, very well acted and genuinely moving…it is fresh, intense and overall quite brilliant.”
The Spy In The Stalls
Brought to you by Sprezzatura Productions, V&V charts two narratives: the iconic love story of literary treasure Virginia Woolf and esteemed socialite Vita Sackville-West; and a far newer story of Lottie from Tunbridge Wells and love cynic Mia. Written and directed by Misha Pinnington, V&V made its debut at VAULT Festival in March 2020 where it received an OffComm and won the VAULT Festival Origins Award for Outstanding New Work.
