‘Hilda and Virginia’ Review

Hilda and Virginia Jermyn Theatre 01/03/2018

What a great little theatre Jermyn Street Theatre is. Tucked away behind Piccadilly Circus…it’s intimate and friendly with cutting edge programming.

“Hilda and Virginia” are two plays about two very different women,  written with a sure hand by accomplished playwright and poet Maureen Duffy.

These monologues explore the life and experiences of Hilda, a sixth century abbess, and Virginia Woolf, writer and founder member of the Bloomsbury set. Hilda and Virginia’s contrasting and fascinating lives are revealed through interesting facts, garlanded with poetic flair.

Monologues are always a challenge for the actor, and although I was not always convinced by her characterization I thought Sarah Crowden had a good stab at it.

Maureen Duffy devotees will not want to miss this literary treat and the Jermyn Street Theatre is definitely one to watch!
