Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?
January 30 @ 1:30 pm
Edward Albee’s Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? examines the human capacity for denial and fantasy through the intense and troubled marriage of a university couple, George and Martha.
The play begins as they return from a party hosted by Martha’s father, the president of the university. Though it’s now early the next morning, Martha has invited Nick and Honey over for drinks. “Daddy said to be nice to them.” But the couple is anything but nice.
George and Martha fight and then turn against the other couple. Their bitter words embarrass and fascinate Nick and Honey as George and Martha share some dark secrets.
