Bogart is reunited with original cast member and SITI co-artistic director Ellen Lauren to re-create the work, which "traces the movement of a creative spirit in exquisite crisis; an artist in a pressure cooker of articulation; a woman who seeks room to move, room to breathe, and room to imagine."

Jocelyn Clarke adapted the work from Woolf's writings. Performances will continue through March 27.

Room has sets by Neil Patel, costumes by James Schuette, original lighting by Christopher Akerlind, sound by Darron L West and associate lighting design by Brian H Scott. Barney O'Hanlon is movement dramaturg.

Lauren has also appeared in the SITI productions of Under Construction, Radio MacBeth, Who Do You Think You Are, Hotel Cassiopeia, Death and the Ploughman, Midsummer Night's Dream, bobrauschenbergamerica, systems/layers, War of the Worlds, Cabin Pressure, The Medium, Culture of Desire, Going, Going, Gone and Orestes.

Woolf's works include "The Voyage Out," "Night and Day," "Jacob's Room," "Mrs. Dalloway," "To the Lighthouse," "Orlando: A Biography," "The Waves," "The Years" and "Between the Acts."
