From one of the most critically acclaimed playwrights of the 20th Century, theatron group is will present the first production of Edward Albee’s masterpiece Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf? since his sad passing earlier this year.
The ground breaking, award winning play with it’s intense, engaging and dynamic dialogue will be brought to life under the direction of one of Sydney’s most exciting new directors, Shane Bosher with Nicholas Papademetriou and Deborah Galanos taking on the iconic roles of washed-up College Professor George and his volatile and seductive wife Martha. Christian Charisiou and Adele Querol round out the cast as the new College couple Nick and Honey.
Immortalised by the Academy Award winning film adaption, the story is unwittingly familiar: when New England College veterans invite the unsuspecting new couple over for a nightcap, the all night drinking session erupts into a nightmare of revelations fuelled by ‘fun and games’.
When it debuted it was amusing, enthralling and shocking for theatregoers with its brutal view of marital discord and generations later it is as powerful today as it was back on Broadway in1962.
Staged at The Greek Theatre, the intimate space casts the audience as voyeurs, promising an up-close-and- personal encounter with George and Martha.
