The tale of a secret love affair between two legendary authors will be performed on the Market Theatre stage.

On Saturday (June 15), NKP Theatre Company's 'Vita & Virginia' will reveal the relationship between modernist writer Virginia Woolf and author Vita Sackville-West at the Ledbury venue.

Their 20-year relationship, which began in 1920s London, led to Woolf’s renowned novel, Orlando.

The play, which has been adapted by the cast from Eileen Atkins' original, will bring to life the actual letters and diaries of the women, and embrace the depth of their friendship.
