IPFW presents Orlando
Starts April 12
By Eddie Torres
Fort Wayne Reader
Sarah Ruhl’s inspired adaptation of Virginia Woolf’s novel Orlando is a poetic and vivid hymn of praise to the art and importance of discovering oneself.
It is also wildly clever and funny. Woolf wrote Orlando in 1928, as a homage to her friend, the writer Vita Sackville-West.
Directed by Jeff Casazza, Orlando, a young man in Elizabethan England, starts his amorous career as a lover to the Queen, then moves to an affair with the Russian princess Sasha. But, as in Sackville-West’s own life, gender preferences shift and in this case, so do genders, all accompanied by subtle and satiric commentary on the status of men and women.
Heather Moser, pictured above, takes on the role of Orlando and Orlando.
