The Maltings

Tickets £6/Students FREE. Those who have booked tickets for Orlando can also attend for FREE but places MUST be booked in advance.

This session is presented in association with the Berwick Education Association.

Michael Ayton teaches at Newcastle Explore, a lifelong learning centre. As an introduction to the Dyad Theatre Company’s Orlando, he’ll discuss how Virginia Woolf came to write this most unclassifiable of books and outline the controversies surrounding it, looking at its style, presentation of history and ‘other’ cultures and its connection with present-day feminism and gender politics.
