Mrs Dalloway

Author:

Virginia Woolf

Synopsis:

One hot June day in London in 1923, the elegant and vivacious Clarissa Dalloway prepares for an evening party, reminiscing about childhood romance, and dwelling on her daughter Elizabeth's rapidly-approaching adulthood. Meanwhile, the shell-shocked Septimus Warren Smith hears the birds in Regent's Park chattering in Greek. There seems to be nothing to link the two: she is middle-aged and prosperous, with a sheltered, happy life behind her; whilst he teeters on the brink of madness, slowly spiralling towards self-annihilation. Yet their two spheres are about to collide...

Worse still, she's forced to share the bungalow with Ben, the clueless and domestically challenged fiance of her bossy sister Prue. Ben is a man in need of simple instruction. And Kate is a woman in need of a project. So, she decides to train Ben, her foster husband, as a selfless pre-wedding gift to her sister. But Kate may still have a few lessons of her own to learn...

April 1919. The Great War has ended and childhood sweethearts Nadine Waveney and Riley Purefoy are married.
