Orlando - by Virginia Woolf, adapted by Sarah Ruhl

May 5-14, 2023

Hilberry Gateway

A sophisticated and poetic stage adaptation of Virginia Woolf's Orlando by Sarah Ruhl tells the story of a young nobleman who is drawn into a love affair with Queen Elizabeth I. For a time, life at court is interesting enough, but Orlando yearns for something more. As he strives to make his way as a poet and lover, his travels keep him at the heart of a dazzling tale where gender and gender preferences shift regularly, usually with hilarious results.
