With Individual Desire by Susanna Fournier
In the summer of 1922 famed “bad-girl” American poet, Edna St. Vincent Millay, left Paris with a secret. She spent the next two months with her mother, Cora, in a secluded farmhouse near Dorset.
Filled with fantasy and humour, With Individual Desire, is a lush theatrical imagining of the complexities between a mother and daughter confronting their lives, loves, past, and the life-altering turning point they can no longer escape.
