BBC Two has revealed news for an upcoming three-part drama series that will be entitled Life in Squares. The TV series will centre on the relationship between sisters, Virginia Woolf and Vanessa Bell, as well as focusing on artist, Duncan Grant.
The series, which will be directed by Simon Kaijser and has been written by Amanda Coe, encompasses over 40 years of history, from the death of Queen Victoria to the years of the Second World War.
When discussing the work of both director and screenwriter for Life in Squares, Lucy Richer (Commissioning Editor and Executive Producer) said that: ‘We are thrilled to be telling the intimate story of these intriguing and influential sisters and their friends. The combination of Amanda’s writing and Simon’s directing is an exciting modern take on a story which is timelessly fascinating.’
Woolf, an English writer who is iconic for her modernist style and feminist themes, has penned the epochal novels Mrs Dalloway, To The Lighthouse and Jacob’s Room. She has also written famous non-fiction books and essays, including A Room of One’s Own.
The production for the TV series which examines the Bloomsbury Group, is to take place this summer in London and East Sussex.
