Fall Term Theater Production: Orlando
Based on what Jeanette Winterston of The Guardian named as the first transnovel (Virginia Woolf’s 'Orlando'), 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.
