Online Theatre activity for Youth - Virginia Wolf // Geordie Theatre
Geordie Theatre's much anticipated new production Virginia Wolf is on its way! This beautiful story is finally getting a chance to grace the stage, to be recorded and broadcast to your screens. We invite you to join us for this brand new virtual experience, recommended for ages 6 and up.
A story about love, support and care, this tale provides amazing visuals and imagination to brighten up the lives of children and their families. Adapted from the Governor General award-winning children’s story by Kyo Maclear, this show will ignite the imagination of young audiences everywhere.
Virginia is in a “wolfish” mood — growling, howling, and acting very strange. It’s a funk so fierce, the whole household feels topsy-turvy. Her sister Vanessa tries everything she can think of to cheer her up, but nothing seems to work. Then Virginia tells her about an imaginary, perfect place called Bloomsberry. Armed with an idea, Vanessa begins to paint the bedroom walls, transforming them into a beautiful garden complete with a ladder and swing. So that what was down could climb up. Before long, Virginia, too, has picked up a brush and undergoes a surprising transformation of her own. Virginia Wolf is a poetic telling of what it is to deal with sometimes unwanted emotions. Playful in nature and rife with creativity and wonder, this heartwarming play reminds us of the importance of patience, support and love.
