One lifetime isn't enough. One body isn't enough.

After living 200 years as a handsome English nobleman, Orlando falls asleep and awakens—as a woman. In a dream or in reality, Orlando must now continue on in a body she does not recognize, but perhaps always sensed was her own. Sarah Ruhl's adaptation of Virginia Woolf's seminal novel examines time's relentless drive forward and our instinct to fill each moment of life with poetry, imagination, passion, and eroticism.

Jen Wineman is a third-year MFA candidate at Yale School of Drama where her credits include Shakespeare’s The Tempest, Michael Mitnick’s new musical The Current War, and Susan Soon He Stanton’s new play The Art of Preservation. Other credits include Susan Soon He Stanton’s The Underneath, Annie Weisman’s Be Aggressive, Michael Barker’s Kids These Days (Yale Cabaret); Sarah Ruhl’s Late: a cowboy song (Yale Summer Cabaret); and a workshop of Office Space: The Musical (Yale College). In New York her work has been seen at Classic Stage Company, HERE Arts Center, the Culture Project, American Place Theatre, the University Settlement, and the Atlantic Theater Company Acting School.
