It took some time for Virginia Woolf's delectable 1928 novel, Orlando, to become as polymorphous as its title character, a charming young Elizabethan nobleman who changes identities, continents, affections, and genders over five fantastic centuries. But after Sally Potter's bold 1992 film adaptation provided a breakout role for Tilda Swinton at the Sundance Film Festival, playwright Sarah Ruhl adapted what has been called "the longest love letter in the history of English letters" for the stage in 1998. In it, an endlessly inquisitive and open individual actually has the time to taste of—and learn from—the whole of human experience. This Delta Boys production includes actors Emily Anderson, Skylar Gudasz, Rajeev Rajendran, Caitlin Wells, and Dale Wolf. —Byron Woods
