Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf

April 19th - 21st 2012

The Forum Studio Theatre



Synopsis:
You are cordially invited to a night of drunken fun and games with George and Martha, a middle aged married couple, whose charged relationship is defined by vitriolic verbal battles. George is a disillusioned History professor in the university where Martha's father is the President. Late one Saturday evening after a campus party, Martha invites Nick, the enthusiastic new young professor and Honey, his mousy wife, over for a nightcap. As the evening progresses, Nick and Honey, plied with more alcohol, get caught up in George and Martha's relentless and scathing games of verbal and sometimes physical abuse. Simultaneously fascinated and embarrassed, the young couple choose to stay, even though the abuse turns periodically towards them as well.
Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? is a dark intense comedy originally written for the stage, but most famous for the performances of Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton in the film version that won a staggering total of 5 Oscars. Come and join the party.......
