About the Show

Orlando is a nobleman whose life is full of Elizabethan man things, like having sword fights and seducing beautiful women. Everyone is certain about Orlando’s gender; in fact, the opening line describing Orlando is, “he - for there could be no doubt of his sex - though the fashion of the age did something to disguise it…” And yet, there is doubt, and not just because of Orlando’s puffy pants. One night, Orlando goes to bed as usual and wakes up the next morning as a woman. Everything has changed, but Orlando is still…Orlando. As she moves through centuries of life, gender norms and expectations shift around Orlando, but she constantly finds herself reaching to understand the person she used to be, the person she is now, and the person she is in the process of becoming.
