SITI Company - "Room"

Palmer Auditorium

Directed by Anne Bogart
Adapted by Jocelyn Clarke

SITI Company is a seven-time Obie award-winning theater company with a history of innovative work. They are dedicated to creating and touring bold new productions. This season SITI returns to Connecticut College with their production "Room;" a solo tour de force, based on Virginia Woolf's writings. Woolf wrote with delicacy, humor, anger, outrage and passion from the point of view of a highly creative woman in the first half of the twentieth century. "Room" is drawn from a lifetime of writing and traces the movement of a creative spirit in exquisite crisis.
