Thomas Bailey, the 2017 recipient of the Bryan Forbes Director’s Bursary, will direct Mrs Dalloway in a brand new, free adaptation by Hal Coase.  On a single day in 1920s London, we delve deep into the life of Clarissa Dalloway, as she prepares to throw a party for her high-society friends and members of the Government.  In the same city, a very different story unfolds, as first world war veteran Septimus Warren Smith seeks help from the ruling class that Clarissa entertains. This fast-paced, dynamic staging of Virginia Woolf's classic tale will be performed by the National Youth Theatre's 2017 REP Company.
