A sophisticated and poetic stage adaptation of Virginia Woolf’s ORLANDO about the Elizabethan nobleman, Orlando, his journey through the centuries and his transformation from a man to a woman. Orlando and Sasha must be played by women. The author suggests that a chorus of 3 male actors play the rest of the parts. Apart from Orlando and Sasha the casting is gender-flexible, though.
