Liverpool Town Hall
EVENTHORIZON’s meta-fictional sequel to Virginia Woolf’s classic examination of gender transports Orlando to a savage, modern age. Haunted by heartbreak, Orlando must now confront the complexities of desire in a dark and devastatingly comic tale of sex, identity and love in the twenty-first century.
An intimate play exposing binary-breaking ideals in an unapologetic, transformative new work. Woolf’s masterpiece transformed early twentieth-century societal conventions. Debating sexuality, identity, aging and gender, this reimagining places Orlando in an emotionally desolate modern world, until her/his passions are reawakened to the possibilities it might hold, unpicking Woolf’s classic from a twenty-first century perspective.
