Orlando: A Biography
Two River Theater’s book club is led by Literary Manager, Taylor Barfield. Each book featured, ties into the themes of our next production.
Written by Virginia Woolf one of the most prolific novelists of the early-20th Century, Orlando: A Biography follows Orlando, a poet, whose gender mysteriously changes from man to woman at the age of thirty. After that, Orlando goes on to live for three-hundred more years of adventures. From Queen Elizabeth I’s reign to 1928, Woolf crafts an irreverent trip through English literary history. In connection with our production of Twelfth Night, we’ll discuss gender, class, English literature, and battles of wit.
Book club will take place in the Victoria J. Mastrobuono Library; coffee, tea and light refreshments will be provided.
