This chapter examines the issue of autonomy for Vanessa Bell in Eureka's dramatic visioning of Charleston and the demands of both house and art. In the play Angel in the House, Eureka chronicles more than sixty years in the lives of painters Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant, members of the Bloomsbury Group, from their beginnings as emerging artists struggling to sort out their personal and artistic desires, through family struggles and beyond two world wars, ending with Bell's death in 1961. Focusing on Angel in the House, the chapter addresses three contexts: Bell's work as a woman and artist in a post-Victorian world; Eureka's work with the Ridiculous Theatre Company at the height of the AIDS crisis; and Charlie's own approach to complexities of creation in 2012.
