Synopsis


“As long as she thinks of a man, nobody objects to a woman thinking.”


Pageboy to Elizabeth I, lover to a Russian princess, ambassador to Constantinople - Orlando leads a life of excitement and glamour.


But one day he falls into a deep sleep, and wakes up to find that he's now a woman.


Now, the time-travelling Orlando has to carve out a new path and find new roles to play.


Virginia Woolf wrote her masterpiece in 1928 as a tribute to her lover, Vita Sackville West.


Sarah Ruhl's dazzling adaptation sweeps the audience on a magical journey across frozen rivers, tumultuous seas, and four centuries.
