About

"Sarah Ruhl’s inspired adaptation of Virginia Woolf’s novel Orlando is a poetic and vivid paeon to the art and importance of discovering oneself. It is also wildly clever and funny."— New York Theatre Wire

Orlando starts off life very much a boy. As a young servant in the court of Queen Elizabeth I many women fall in love with him, including the great Queen herself.  

But soon all his affairs
start spinning out of control.

After a particularly wild night out in Constantinople, he wakes up to find himself a woman. Orlando now has to find her way home, as time spins ever faster through the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries, as she tries to work out what it really means to be a woman and a human being alive here and now, in this present moment.
