The West End run of Neil Bartlett's Orlando, adapted from
Virginia Woolf's novel, officially opened at the Garrick Theatre December
5 following previews that began November 26. Performances continue
through February 25, 2023.
Emma Corrin (The Crown) stars in the title role, joined by Deborah Findlay as Mrs. Grimsditch, Jessica Alade as Virginia/Drunken Tory, Debra Baker as Virginia/Favilla/The Captain, Akuc Bol as Virginia/Euphrosyne/Prue, Lucy Briers as Virginia/Queen Elizabeth/Officer, Richard Cant as Virginia/Harriet/Kitty, Melissa Lowe as Virginia/Drunken Tory, Jodie McNee as Virginia/Marmaduke, Oliver Wickham as Virginia/Clorinda, and Millicent Wong as Virginia/Sasha/Nell.
Michael Grandage directs, reuniting him with Corrin, following their recent collaboration on the Amazon feature film My Policeman.
Born in the reign of Elizabeth I, the hero-heroine of Orlando journeys through five centuries and a myriad of encounters in search of the answer to one question: How do we find the courage to truly be ourselves?
Corrin returns to the stage following their Olivier-nominated performance in Anna X. The actor played Lady Diana Spencer in The Crown, winning a Golden Globe and Critics Choice Award, as well as receiving a SAG and Emmy nomination. They star in the films My Policeman and Lady Chatterley’s Lover and the limited series Retreat.
The production also has set and costume design by Peter McKintosh, lighting design by Howard Hudson, sound design and compositions by Alex Baranowski, movement by Ben Wright, associate direction by Anna Girvan, and casting by Jacob Sparrow.
MGC and Sand and Snow Entertainment produce.
