Our top choice this week is “Orlando” by Virginia Woolf, adapted by Lettie Precious podcast.
A spirited new version of Virginia Woolf’s Orlando adapted with a distinctly queer point of view. This adaptation revels in the origin of the story as a love letter from Woolf to Vita Sackville West.
Beginning the story as a young 16th century nobleman, Orlando’s life spans centuries, continents, lovers and genders in a sumptuous celebration of what it means to explore one’s own identity.
Lettie Precious celebrates this gender fluid masterpiece as a progressive tale in the context of its own time, while also bringing a distinctly 21st century lens to the issues of gender, sexuality, privilege and race raised by the text. A love letter to a love letter.
