WHO’S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF?

|Multiple Performances (See all)

A Classic Drama by Edward Albee

May 18 – June 3, 2018

Intensely witty, consistently entertaining and completely absorbing.

When Edward Albee died in 2016, he was the last representative of an American playwriting tradition that had begun with Eugene O’Neill and included such giants as Arthur Miller and Tennessee Williams, all playwrights who wrote about the American family as if it were the center of their artistic universe. Albee made his explosive debut in 1962 when Virginia Woolf became the most talked about and controversial play on Broadway. Damned by some for its explicit use of language and sexual themes, it was hailed by others as the most brilliantly written examination of a marriage in the modern theatre.

The play takes place one night after a faculty meeting in a small college when George and Martha (a middle-aged professor and his wife) invite Nick and Honey (a new member of the faculty and his wife) over for drinks and (what the older couple calls) “Fun and Games”. People who only remember the humorless film version of the play sometimes forget that Edward Albee’s masterpiece is also intensely witty, consistently entertaining and completely absorbing.
