Orlando: Who is she? Who is he? Who are we? 

Find out in the life-affirming, comedic tale of an immortal poet, whose gender cannot be pinned down, whose spirit cannot be caged, and whose irreverent, romantic adventures across British history – from the 1500s to the present day – provide a magic-realist exploration of human identity; personal, sexual and national. 

Drawing on a decade’s worth of critically-acclaimed theatre-making, Dyad Productions – performer Rebecca Vaughan and writer/director Elton Townend Jones – explore what it means to find our place in the world whilst remaining utterly true to who we are. Based on the satirical 1928 novel by Virginia Woolf.

From the award-winning creators of Jane Eyre: An Autobiography, Christmas Gothic, Dalloway, The Unremarkable Death of Marilyn Monroe, The Time Machine, Austen’s Women and I, Elizabeth.

Presented by Dyad Productions

Venue: Studio Theatre
