Looking for Lilith’s 2016 March Women’s History Month production is Orlando by one of this country’s most exciting women playwrights. Pulitzer-nominated playwright Sarah Ruhl brings her imagistic writing to an inspired adaptation of Virginia Woolf's time-shifting, gender-bending novel Orlando.

Described as a literary love-letter to Vita Sackville-West, Woolf’s novel follows the character of Orlando across four centuries and several continents, a conceit that translates to the play script: “A woman plays a man. That man wakes up after a long slumber to discover he is a woman...a magnificent celebration of transcending as well as trans-gending." (The Daily Telegraph)

Fully embracing the theatrical potential of Woolf's sprawling novel, Ruhl captures the wonder, inconceivability and sheer audacity of Orlando's epic journey, beautifully illustrating Woolf's notions of the fluidity of gender and identity, and the great mysteries of time. "Ruhl's poetically spare style dovetails with Woolf's prose and enhances the velocity of the novel while highlighting the still moments of contemplation within its momentum." (SFGate) "...Admirers of Woolf and Ruhl will be very happy with this [play], as will anybody looking for a good time, lots of laughter, and something to think about." (Examiner.com)
