Virginia Woolf

The Waves

Read by Frances Jeater


The Waves traces the lives of six friends from childhood to old age.

It was written when Virginia Woolf was at the height of her experimental literary powers, and she allows each character to tell their own story, through powerful, poetic monologues. By listening to these voices struggling to impose order and meaning on their lives, we are drawn into a literary journey which stunningly reproduces the complex, confusing and contradictory nature of human experience.





Frances Jeater’s theater work has included Gertrude in Hamlet; an American tour of Much Ado About Nothing; Middle and

Far East tours of Harvey; and Prisoner of Second Avenue, Haymarket Theatre, London. Favorite TV: Gift of the Nile, filmed in Egypt. Frances has always enjoyed working for BBC Radio Drama and recording audiobooks. She read Chaucer’s The Wife of Bath, the part of Mrs. Eynsford Hill in Pygmalion and also part of Great Explorers for Naxos AudioBooks.
