From award-winning Dyad Productions comes a sharp new stage adaptation of a literary classic: Orlando, coming to artsdepot on Thursday, June 6.

Writer/director Elton Townend Jones and performer Rebecca Vaughan present the award-winning comedic tale of an immortal poet, whose gender cannot be pinned down, whose spirit cannot be caged. Their irreverent, romantic adventures across British history, from the 1500s to 2019, provide a magic-realist exploration of human identity: personal, sexual and national. The one-woman show is based on the satirical 1928 novel by Virginia Woolf, Orlando: A Biography, which is widely considered a feminist classic.

Orlando asks what it means to find one’s place in the world whilst remaining true to oneself. Drawing on a decade’s worth of successful theatre-making, this life-affirming, feminist voyage into the soul is the culmination of everything Dyad Productions has so far created, toured and presented since 2009.

Dyad Productions creates, produces and tours classic theatre with an innovative and contemporary emphasis. This stage production based on the classic modernist novel is Dyad’s tenth original production in as many years.
