Life In Squares tells the story of the Bloomsbury group over 40 years, from the death of Queen Victoria to the Second World War, as they attempted to forge a life free from the constraints of the past. Their pursuit of freedom and beauty was always passionate, often impossible and ultimately devastating, yet their legacy is still felt today. The series dramatises the exceptionally close, often fraught relationship of sisters Vanessa Bell and Virginia Woolf, and Vanessa's enduring, sexually complicated alliance with gay artist Duncan Grant.
