Imelda Staunton is at her magnificent best. A first-rate revival of an astonishing play.
In the early hours of the morning on the campus of an American college, Martha, much to her husband George’s displeasure, has invited the new professor Nick and his wife Honey to their home for some after-party drinks. As the alcohol flows and dawn approaches, the young couple are drawn into George and Martha’s toxic games until the evening reaches its climax in a moment of devastating truth-telling.
James Macdonald’s blistering production. Intoxicatingly good. Imelda Staunton and Conleth Hill are superb
James Macdonald directs a new production of multi-Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Edward Albee’s landmark play Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?
Starring Olivier and Bafta award-winning actress Imelda Staunton (Gypsy, Sweeney Todd, Edward Albee’s A Delicate Balance); Olivier award-winner Conleth Hill (Game Of Thrones, Stones In His Pockets, The Producers); Olivier award-winner Luke Treadaway (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, Fortitude, The Hollow Crown) and Imogen Poots, in her West End debut (A Long Way Down, Jane Eyre and Me And Orson Wells).
A fierce revival. Conleth Hill is superb. Exquisite.
