Orlando

From Dyad Productions, the creators of Jane Eyre: An AutobiographyChristmas Gothic, DallowayI, Elizabeth, Female Gothic, The Time Machine and Austen’s Women.

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 award-winning 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.
