Virginia Woolf’s novel Orlando is the sexy, ever-surprising epic of a life that spans centuries, shifts genders, and defies labels and is adapted for the stage by Sarah Ruhl, a brilliant contemporary playwright.
Orlando follows the adventures of titular nobleman as he spans cities, centuries, and eventually gender presentation. After being taken under the wing of Queen Elizabeth the First and having his heart broken by a mysterious Russian princess, Orlando flees England in order to drown his sorrows. Instead, he takes a curiously long sleep and wakes to an even more curious discovery—he has become a woman. Taking her new identity in stride, Orlando must learn to navigate the world as she never did before, balancing her nature with the expectations of society around her.
