Bernard, Neville, Louis, Jinny, Rhoda and Susan are childhood friends. Bound by their mutual love and hate, their lives remain interwoven from their shared school days and despite their divergent paths through adulthood. The Waves follows these six individual but irrevocably connected souls as they navigate their various experiences, their communal griefs, and their relationships to one another and the world around them.
Come and see the novel that Virginia Woolf called her ‘play-poem’ brought to the Cambridge stage for the first time, in a new adaptation which celebrates multimedia and innovative theatre. The Waves is a lyrical expression of love, loss and longing, which promises to be both evocative and emotional.
