poster_thumbVirginia Woolf is the focus of a new play staged as part of the NotaBle Acts Summer Theatre Festival in  Fredericton, New Brunswick.

Written by Bruce Allen Lynch and titled The Nicest Place In England, the play tells the story of Woolf’s visit to her friend Dora Carrington after Lytton Strachey’s death.  According to the NotaBle Acts Web site, it is a “visitation that forces both women into an uncomfortable, harrowing, and at times surprisingly comic confrontation with the past.”

The Nicest Place in England will be on stage July 28, Aug. 1 and Aug. 2 at Memorial Hall at the University of New Brunswick.  The play is one of two 2009 one-act playwriting contest winners in the NotaBle Acts competition.
