OrlandoThe adventures of time-travelling, gender-swapping poet Orlando, who is born male in Elizabethan England and dies female over 300 years later. The WavesIn this radical 'play-poem', six characters look back on their childhood and first forays into adulthood, and reflect on the loss of their friend Percival.
