Orlando

11:30, 02 - 27 Aug

Orlando: Who is she? Who is he? Who are we? In their 10th consecutive year of acclaimed theatre at Assembly, performer Rebecca Vaughan and writer/director Elton Townend-Jones present the 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 provide a life-affirming, magical realist exploration of human identity; personal, sexual and national. Based on the satirical 1928 novel by Virginia Woolf. Previous shows: Austen’s Women, Jane Eyre: An Autobiography, I, Elizabeth, Female Gothic, The Time Machine, The Unremarkable Death of Marilyn Monroe and Dalloway.
