Spend a day experiencing the innermost thoughts, feelings, elations, and disappointments of a variety of people with intersecting lives. The day begins and ends in the 1920s with Clarissa Dalloway's party, and the people - past & present - that are important to her. It's a chance to experience what Woolf described as "the enormous within the everyday", but be prepared for a meandering journey. Pretty much plot-free, some parts are absolutely riveting, some parts are flat-out boring, but overall it's about delving within and mining the inconsistency of the human psyche for material.
