Review this show

Overview

"I'm sick to death of this particular self. I want another."

Have you ever lived outside yourself? Have you dreamed of escaping your identity, or yearned to leave behind those definitions handed down to you: loud or quiet, male or female, straight, gay, working/middle/upper class?

Lucy Roslyn's new play is the story of a person looking for escape, a person desperate to leave behind the identitarian bullshit of 2019.

In 1928 Virginia Woolf imagined her own freedom through the character of Orlando. Heartbroken by her affair with Vita Sackville-West, Woolf created a young boy born in Elizabethan England, who lives and loves, writes and rewrites through four hundred years, ending her days as a woman in the twentieth century.

Woolf's novel strains at the boundaries of identity: are we any one thing? Or are our selves 'stacked like dinner plates', one on top of the other?
