More than a play or a compilation of letters between Virginia Woolf and Vita Sackville-West, this is a relationship exposed in two acts. In its light and in its shadow, in its subtleties, in its sensuality and in its humour, in its defiance. As these are two women with such striking personalities, it also ends up being an endless game between the two, which gives the viewer the feeling of peeking through the keyhole at every moment – between curiosity, fascination and the shamelessness of looking at these two icons, more than as writers, as women – in all their complexity.
