Rehearsal images have now been released for Michael Grandage’s upcoming production of Orlando, which begins performances next month. It has been adapted from Virginia Woolf’s novel by Neil Bartlett.

Orlando tells a story like no other. Born in the reign of Elizabeth 1st, its hero-heroine journeys through five centuries and a myriad of encounters in search of the answer to just one question; how do any of us find the courage to truly be ourselves?
