Review by Amy Yorston

Intelligently adapted and beautifully performed, Dalloway is a one-woman show that is entrancing.

Rebecca Vaughan navigates her way through the material portraying character after character without the aid of props or costume changes creating a stream of consciousness in which they are all linked.

The white stage is bare aside from a white chaise longue. Vaughan sparkles in a green dress of the period ensuring that attention is centred only upon her performance and the vivid world created through her descriptions.

Never hurried, the pace is appropriate for the piece which ensures that the moments of drama and tension are starkly obvious and powerful, contrasting well with the chatter of parties and love affairs.

Dyad is known for its solo productions, and this is one that can be happily added to its existing stable.
