Carleton Theater to present ORLANDO; auditions announced

7 September 2023

The Fall Theater production will be an adaptation of Virginia Woolf’s ORLANDO.  Based on what Jeanette Winterson of The Guardian named as the first transnovel, the play unfolds the journey of Orlando from the Elizabethan Age to the present. Bounding through time and space, Orlando changes genders, finds and loses love, tries to write a poem, and yearns for something more. Joining Orlando on stage are chorus members who transform in and out of characters throughout the play. This lyrical, magical, whimsical play by Sarah Ruhl celebrates life in all its fluidity and multiplicity.

Auditions will be held September 11 and 12; performances will be October 19-22.
