Columbia School Of The Arts to Present ORLANDO as MFA Acting Thesis Production This Month

Columbia University School of the Arts will present The MFA Acting Class of 2023 in their Acting Thesis production of ORLANDO October 13th through 16th at Lenfest Center for the Arts.

"The dead have wonderful memories." ORLANDO, Virginia Woolf's time-bending novel adapted by Sarah Ruhl, is a poetic romp through several centuries. The play chronicles the life (and additional lives) of a nobleman who dreams of becoming a poet as both time and gender shift. This production, directed by Jimmy Maize, will question how an individual exists within historical parameters. How do we experience the world differently? It's about writing through time and time through gender.

ORLANDO will be presented at Lenfest Center for the Arts.
