UI Theatre presents Orlando @ University of Iowa Theatre Building
Nov 15 @ 8:00 pm

Presented by the University of Iowa Department of Theatre Arts
Mainstage Series

Orlando
By Virginia Woolf
Adapted by Sarah Ruhl
Directed by Erica Vannon

November 8, 9, 14, 15, 16 at 8:00 p.m.
November 10 at 2:00 p.m.
E.C. Mabie Theatre, UI Theatre Building

Sarah Ruhl’s Orlando is a poetic dance of identity across centuries. Highlighting the fluidity of attraction and the mutability of gender, this dreamy adaptation from the original 1928 novel by Virginia Woolf is considered “the longest love letter in the history of English letters” from Woolf to her great love, Vita Sackville-West. One of the American theater’s most beloved playwrights couples her sweeping storytelling with the original, lyrical narration by one of England’s greatest authors to tell an epic story of love.

Tickets:
$20 Adults
$15 Seniors (65+)
$10 Students & Youth
