What it means to find our place in the world whilst remaining utterly true to who we are.

Virginia Woolf's iconic, gender fluid satire from 1928 is getting a theatrical adaptation from the acclaimed British theatre company Dyad Productions as part of the Auckland Writers Festival.
The original Orlando was one of Woolf's most popular novels, fitting a satiric history of English literature in just one book. The novels follows the adventures of a poet who changes their sex from man to woman and lives for centuries, meeting key figures of English literary history along the way.
Dyad Productions' interpretation of Orlando: A Biography – performer Rebecca Vaughan and writer/director Elton Townend Jones – explores "what it means to find our place in the world whilst remaining utterly true to who we are".
