PRODUCTION INFO

ORLANDO, by Sarah Ruhl
Final “Main Stage” production of iDiOM Theater’s 2018/19 Season, performed in Sylvia Center’s Lucas Hicks Theater
Show dates: May 2, 3, 4, 9, 10, 11, 16, 17 & 18
Gender-flexible casting, cast size flexible

Orlando, a beautiful charismatic nobleman, has enjoyed a lifetime of adventures: he becomes the favorite of Queen Elizabeth the First, he dallies with many fine ladies, losing his heart to one mysterious Russian Princess, he wanders Shakespeare’s London and endures the chill of the Great Frost, he travels to Constantinople, where his reputation for spectacular debauchery is indeed vast. But after a nighttime encounter with gypsy, Orlando sleeps for seven days, and wakes to live again—as a woman. As Orlando adapts her bold, free demeanor to the strict and hampering skirts and expectations of feminine behavior, the changing world around her—from Victorian England to the busy department stores of the 20th century—illustrates the mutability of man and woman, and instinct of each to fit their place and time. A dreamy adaptation of Virginia Woolf’s famous tale, Sarah Ruhl’s Orlando is a magical and poetic dance between gender and through time, a fantastical world in which courtly movement and biographical narration combine to tell the story of a being who lives outside of human expectations, and enjoys twice the experience that humanity has to offer.

AJAX, by Sophocles
Show dates June 27 to July 13
Performed in Sylvia Center’s Lucas Hicks Theater

The great Achilles has fallen and his sacred armor awarded Odysseus–a slight that enrages the now greatest-living-Greek-warrior, Ajax. Driven mad by rage Ajax plots to revenge himself against the Greek rulers, but Athena intervenes and fills his head with delusions and visions. The murderous night she leads him to opens the play, and spells the end to the great warrior.

One of the seven surviving plays of Sophocles and part of the Golden Bow series that includes Women of Trachis, and Philoktetes.
