"We had no choice but to confess... He was a woman"

Directed by Gaye Poole and starring Waikato Universities level three students Orlando is the transhistorical, transgender journey of an aspiring poet: Queen Elizabeth's 16 year old nobleman-lover in the 16th century, an ambassador in Constantinople who becomes a woman at 30 at the dawn of the 18th century, a wife in the Victorian era, and still only 36 in the 1920s. Sarah Ruhl's adaptation extracts the vibrant poetic language from Virginia Woolf's novel and infuses it with her own signature style and musicality, resulting in an undeniably transformative theatrical experience.
