University of Idaho announced auditions for its upcoming spring theatre production, “Orlando” by Virginia Woolf, adapted by Sarah Ruhl.
“Orlando,” a literary masterpiece penned by Virginia Woolf and artfully adapted for the stage by Sarah Ruhl, stands as a captivating exploration of identity, love, and the fluidity of gender. The narrative follows the journey of a young Elizabethan nobleman taken under the wing of an aging Queen Elizabeth I. In the throes of romance, heartbreak, and adventure, Orlando undergoes a transformative experience.
Uniquely, after centuries of existence without aging, the character awakens to a new reality—as a woman. The play skillfully navigates the complexities of gender roles and challenges preconceived notions of what it means to be a man, a woman, or an individual transcending traditional binaries.
Directed by Blake Watson, a Master of Fine Arts candidate in the Department of Theatre Arts at the University of Idaho, “Orlando” promises an enchanting theatrical experience that prompts reflection on the intricacies of the human experience.
