20th Century Masterpiece At Rugby Theatre

Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?  Rugby Theatre, 9 - 16 March 2024.



Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? is next up at Rugby Theatre, and we have new photos to share from rehearsals.

The story delves into the lives of George and Martha, a middle-aged couple whose seemingly ordinary evening takes a tumultuous turn when they invite a younger couple over for drinks. As the night unfolds, layers of deception and bitterness are exposed, challenging the very fabric of their relationships.

Be prepared for a gripping portrayal of a dysfunctional and self-destructive marriage with plenty of shocks and revelations along the way! .

Director Malcolm Fawcett says, “Ever since seeing the iconic film version of 1966 (Oscars for Elizabeth Taylor and Sandy Dennis, and nominations for Richard Burton and George Segal) I have been enthralled by this quite remarkable play.”

“What makes it work so well is not just the superb writing by Edward Albee, but the way the plot twists and turns, leaving the audience never quite able to relax, such is the nature of the shocking personal revelations and jaw-dropping verbal confrontations.”

“Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? is now considered a 20th century masterpiece, and is on study programmes here and in the USA,” continues Malcolm. “Squirm, be shocked, laugh and be prepared to feel more than a little uncomfortable at times… but most of all enjoy!”
