From the novel by Virginia Woolf
Adapted by Sarah Ruhl
Directed by James Ijames
In this captivating adaptation of Virginia Woolf’s masterpiece, Sarah Ruhl brings to life the frolicsome and freethinking nobleman Orlando on an epic adventure that transcends time, place, and gender. After awakening from a seven-day slumber, Orlando finds himself transformed into a woman and must navigate artistry, society, and desire from an entirely new perspective. This fantastical, gender-bending, period-hopping parable explores what it means to live in our own skin and in our own time.
