“Orlando had become a woman—there is no denying it. But in every other respect, Orlando remained precisely as he had been.”
As a boy growing up in the Elizabethan age, Orlando’s wild adventures seem to have no end—but things change suddenly when he wakes one morning to find he is a woman.
As identities transform and centuries pass, Orlando discovers just how difficult it can be to live and love in one’s own skin. Part biography, part fabulation, part poetry, this adaptation of Virginia Woolf’s famous novel “suits the stage like a dream, slippery and fantastical.” –The Guardian
