It was very interesting to work on, but, oh God, it was difficult. It was difficult. There’s something very harrowing in the fact that it was fact. It wasn’t fiction. It wasn’t a play. You couldn’t sort of chuck it away with your makeup at night. You were stuck with her rather, and it just haunts you. It doesn’t go away. I found it a very disturbing thing. My father came to see it. He said, ‘Oh, boy, Margaret. I don’t want to sit through that again. I don’t want to go through that.’ He was really distressed by it. I haven’t done that often, played a real person…You can’t say ‘It’s just a play.’ It’s a life. It’s somebody’s existence. Very much of Virginia (the play) was her own words, you know. It was her…  - Maggie Smith, on playing Virginia Woolf in Edna O’Brien’s play Virginia
