Adapted by Sarah Ruhl
From the novel by Virginia Woolf
Directed by L. Zane Jones

Orlando is a handsome, young English nobleman favored by queens and princesses. The poem he’s trying to write isn’t going well; otherwise, he’s having a very nice life. When he consorts with a gypsy, however, things take a strange turn: he awakens from a seven-day sleep transformed into a woman…and an immortal. Virginia Woolf’s Orlando is one of literature’s most beloved fantasies—a love letter, a biography, and an epic poem that Woolf called, “too long to be a joke and too frivolous to be taken seriously.” Sarah’s Ruhl’s dreamy adaptation, directed by School of Drama faculty member L. Zane Jones, is a fun, sexy, gender-bending romp through 300 years of literary history.
