With just over two weeks to go until opening night, it’s time to take a look behind the curtain at the rehearsals for Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf by Edward Albee…
Winner of both the 1963 Tony Award for Best Play and the 1962-1963 New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award for Best Play, Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf is a razor-edged comedy of humiliation, frustration and manipulation where the blurred lines between illusion and reality are forced into focus – no matter how devastating the results.
The story centres around what happens when the venomous duo of George and Martha – a quick-witted college professor and his showy, brazen wife – drag a young professor and his wife into their vicious game of cat and mouse following a late night faculty party. The bitter yet darkly hilarious war that ensues between the older couple builds to unforgettable climax that strips away the lies and posturing to reveal the battered souls of the characters beneath.
