Summer 2015: Edward Albee’s “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?”

On a quaint little university campus in New England in the early hours of the morning, weary, embattled middle-aged husband and wife, George and Martha entertain a new professor and his wife. However their guests are unprepared for the events that follow: A sequence of humiliation tactics, trickery and manipulation that descend the night into a boxing match.

The wicked dexterity of George and Martha’s liquor-ridden tongues as they spar-off with each other and their unwilling but equally troubled guests, together with Albee’s masterful climax have been leaving audiences aghast for over half a century.
