Rapture Theatre bring an iconic American masterpiece to life on stage in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the multi-Oscar winning film.
A marathon night of drink and duplicity develops after Martha, the daughter of the college president, and her husband George invite an unsuspecting young couple round for a nightcap. Drinks flow, spiked with vicious humour, acerbic wit and tempestuous verbal sparring, but as night turns to morning, searing secrets are exposed.
Putting the ‘fun’ into dysfunctional, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? wryly exposes the dark attraction in relationships .
Starring Rose Reynolds, Robin Kingsland and Paul Albertson, with Scottish actress Sara Stewart (The Night Manager, Rebus, Batman Begins, Doctor Foster) leading the cast as Martha. Directed by Michael Emans.
