“Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf”
by Edward Albee
“Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf” was first produced on Broadway in 1962, to critical acclaim. Set in America, in the living room of a house in a small New England college, Martha, daughter of the college president, unbeknownst to her husband Gerorge, a professor of history, has invited Nick & Honey, new arrivals to the college, for a late night gathering.
What follows is a night of alcohol-fuelled and emotionally charged drama.
The Play in in three acts with one interval.
