Life in Squares, a three-part BBC Two drama about the Bloomsbury Group, is getting media attention.
The series tells a version of the Bloomsbury Group’s story over a period of 40 years — from the time of Queen Victoria to World War II.
Here is the description of the first episode, which will air Monday, July 27, at 9 p.m., according to the BBC Two website:
Painter Vanessa Stephen and her writer sister Virginia embark on a life of unexpected, post-Victorian freedom in bohemian Bloomsbury. But when they are introduced to flamboyant male admirers, their idyll is rocked and the sisters’ relationship is threatened.
