In 1908 Katherine Mansfield set sail for London, never to return. After meeting Virginia Woolf, Katherine Mansfield wrote: “I have nothing to say to charming women. I feel like a cat among tigers.”

Virginia’s first impressions of Katherine Mansfield were: “I’m a little shocked by her commonness… She seems to have gone every sort of hog since she was 17.”

Against a colourful background of the people and places that shaped Katherine Mansfield’s “many hundreds of selves”, this play shows these two literary rivals developing a special relationship which defies stereotypes and gossip.

“Parry’s Katherine Mansfield, the ‘colonial’ girl at large in a hard and dazzling world takes us close to ‘the real thing’… does justice to the amusing, clever, compassionate, constantly self-examining personality it engages with. And it shows us Virginia Woolf as well in a freshly slanting light.” – Vincent O’Sullivan.
