Based on Virgina Woolf’s 1928 novel about a poet who changes sex from man to woman, lives for centuries and meets the key figures of English literature, Orlando is a one-woman play at Chelmsford Civic Theatre.

Set from the 1500s to the present day, actress Rebecca Vaughan explores what it means to find our place in the world while remaining true to who we are.

The book is regarded as a high-spirited romp inspired by the tumultuous family history of Woolf’s close friend, Vita Sackville-West.

The play is by Dyad Productions, performer Rebecca Vaughan and writer/director Elton Townend Jones, who gave us Jane Eyre: An Autobiography, Dalloway, The Unremarkable Death of Marilyn Monroe, Christmas Gothic, I, Elizabeth, The Diaries of Adam and Eve, Female Gothic, The Time Machine and Austen’s Women.

In the Cramphorn Studio, March 29 and 30. 7.30pm. Tickets, £15 from 01245 606505 or www.chelmsford.gov.uk/theatres.
