The young nobleman Orlando falls asleep one day only to wake and find himself in the throes of a surprising transformation in this erotic romp through the centuries. Adapted for the stage by MacArthur Fellow Sarah Ruhl, Virginia Woolf's 1928 masterpiece Orlando, based in part on the life of Woolf's lover, Vita Sackville-West, has been described as "the most charming love letter in literature." Ruhl brings her trademark blend of feminism and fantasy to Woolf's gender-bending tale, which follows Orlando's adventures spanning 300 years. Learn More

- "This is the way Shakespeare should be, and so often isn’t. What a delight to see it here, now, in its full glory."--<em><a target="_blank" href="http://www.dcmetrotheaterarts.com/2013/11/02/king-john-at-wsc-avant-bard-by-catherine-artois/">DC Metro Theatre Arts</a> </em>(Five Star Review)
- "Highly recommended -- They don’t perform Shakespeare’s <em>King John</em> much any more, and that’s a damn shame. When it’s done right – as it is in WSC Avant Bard’s excellent production – it is exciting, provocative, and uproariously funny."--<a target="_blank" href="http://dctheatrescene.com/2013/11/02/king-john/"><em>DC Theatre Scene</em> </a>
- "[WSC Avant Bard]'s quite delightful production of this clever and powerful seldom-seen play is a welcome relief from endless <em>Romeo and Juliet</em>’s and all the other rehashed standbys...theatre aficionados take note: this is a rare and excellent performance to add to your collection."--<a target="_blank" href="http://www.mdtheatreguide.com/2013/11/theatre-review-king-john-by-wsc-avant-bard-at-theatre-on-the-run/"><em>MD Theatre Guide</em></a>
