About "Orlando"

Based on the Virginia Woolf novel, this is 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. The New York Theatre Wire says, Orlando is a “subtle and satiric commentary on the status of men and women”. His swashbuckling journey to define himself (herself…?) is sure to entertain and enlighten. Mature themes. Appropriate for teens, not young children.
