[POSTPONED – THIS SHOW DATE IS CANCELLED] Clarissa Buys the Flowers Herself – Parley @ 18th & Union (Seattle – Central District)

By Kate Schwartz
Directed by Rebecca Tourino Collinsworth

Who knew a play about a fractured society in post-World War, post-pandemic London would feel so timely in 2022?​

An adaptation of Virginia Woolf’s 1925 novel (Mrs. Dalloway), Clarissa Buys the Flowers Herself  tells the story of one day in the life of a woman as she prepares to host a party. Clarissa Dalloway recalls memories of her life as an adventurous, free-spirited young woman. Thirty years later, the 1918 pandemic has taken an enormous toll on her both physically and mentally. Meanwhile, Septimus Warren Smith, a shell-shocked veteran, is constantly haunted by flashbacks of World War I.

With this script-in-hand workshop, Parley returns to in-person performance with an accomplished cast of beloved Seattle actors.
