Glasgow Theatre: Cryptic Orlando, CCA, 27 – 29 March 2014


Thu 27 March — Sat 29 March 2014

Cryptic’s sensuous epic of self-discovery…

A cutting-edge music theatre adaptation of Virginia Woolf’s glorious ode to lover Vita Sackville-West, featuring an original soundtrack by composers Craig Armstrong and AGF and directed by Cryptic’s Cathie Boyd.

“The overall effect is dazzling…so rich in texture… that it demands to be seen not once, but many times; and each time, I suspect, with more feeling.” 4 stars, The Scotsman

“Blinding in its neon beauty.” The Skinny

Orlando opens with the hero as a young man in Elizabethan England, and follows his transformations of fortune, love and even gender in this multi-faceted, century-spanning quest for ‘life and a lover’. A sensuous epic of self-discovery, Virginia Woolf’s novel has been described as ‘the longest and most charming love letter in literature’, relishing an era where opulence and hedonism were savoured.
