U of I Theatre to Present Virginia Woolf Classic ‘Orlando’ Beginning April 25

April 08, 2024

MOSCOW, Idaho — The University of Idaho Department of Theatre Arts presents “Orlando” by Virginia Woolf and adapted by Sarah Ruhl for seven performances starting with opening night at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, April 25, at the Forge Theater, 404 Sweet Ave. in Moscow.

Additional show dates and times include:

  • 7:30 p.m. Friday, April 26
  • 7:30 p.m. Saturday, April 27
  • 2 p.m. Sunday, April 28
  • 7:30 p.m. Friday, May 3
  • 7:30 p.m. Saturday, May 4
  • 2 p.m. Sunday, May 5

“Orlando” feels as relevant today as when it was published nearly 100 years ago in 1928 and tackles complex themes ranging from gender, romance, adventure and immortality.

Over a span of 500 years, we travel through time and watch how Orlando — a young, wealthy nobleman in Elizabethan England — experiences love and heartbreak and, after several centuries without aging, is eventually transformed into a woman.

“Orlando” is directed by U of I Master of Fine Arts student Blake Watson from Bozeman, Montana. Previous directing credits include “Constellations,” “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time,” “The Big Heartless” and most recently as assistant director for the U of I production of “Amelie.”

Tickets for U of I students are free and $5 to $25 for the general public. They are available online at or at the door an hour before each show begins. April 25 is preview night and all general admission tickets are $10.
