Virginia Woolf’s Orlando was first published in 1938, and it is as timely now as it ever was. A fierce feminist wise beyond her years, Woolf’s contribution to the literary world–and the world at large–is prolific, with her biggest lesson being that autonomy and self-agency is essential for true liberation. We’re excited to revisit her work at Soulpepper Theatre Company, and we’re certain it will provoke thoughtful discussion.
Presented by Soulpepper and starring Sarah Afful, Woolf’s all-powerful masterpiece Orlando has been adapted for the big stage by Sarah Ruhl, one of today’s most celebrated playwrights.
In case you haven’t read it (you should), Orlando is the tale of a poet who changes sex from man to woman, living for centuries across multiple continents on an endless journey to find love.
