New York City
Edward Albee’s masterpiece Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? exposes the private lives and painful secrets of two couples thrown together for an evening. George, a professor at a small college, and his wife Martha invite new professor Nick and his spouse Honey over for a nightcap. As the drinks flow and inhibitions fade away, the young couple is drawn into George and Martha’s twisted games. The brutally dark play is filled with brilliant wit, eloquent language, and biting humor. It is a tragedy and yet ends with a great act of courage and love, and leaves behind just the slightest scent of hope.
