The Vinyl Theatre presents
George and Martha live a respectable life in the safe confines of New England academia but the stark reality of their day-to-day existence starts becoming painfully apparent one fateful night when their young guests, Nick and Honey, visit for some late drinks. As the alcohol flows, so the games the couples play turn more vicious and the stinging insults George and Martha deal out are traded with increasing ferocity. But the entertainment won’t end until George orchestrates one final, earth-shattering revelation. Switching elegantly from comedy to drama Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? ultimately poses the question of – who is afraid is to live a life outside society’s norms and expectations?
Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf ? is Edward Albee’s classic, Tony award-winning play from 1962. As an Oscar winning movie in 1966, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? gained global acclaim with Academy Award nominations in every category, including for its headline stars Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor.
Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? is presented by TheVinylTheatre, whose previous productions in Aberdeen include Betrayal, Old Times (both Harold Pinter), 4000 Miles (Amy Herzog), Rabbit Hole (David Lindsay-Abaire), Closer (Patrick Marber) and A Steady Rain (Keith Huff) performed in Vancouver.
