Based upon the two lectures delivered by author Virginia Woolf to the women of Girton College, Cambridge in 1928. Simply staged, in a lecture hall, actress Eileen Atkins portrays Woolf as she speaks to a group of students about the role of women in fiction and particularly the difficulties of being a woman artist. Virginia Woolf's thesis was that in order to write, "a woman must have money and a room of one's own."
