This production was captured live for cinemas from the Harold Pinter Theatre, London.
Imelda Staunton is at her magnificent best. A first-rate revival of an astonishing play.
Sonia Friedman Productions present Imelda Staunton (Gypsy, Vera Drake, the Harry Potter films), Conleth Hill (Game Of Thrones, The Producers), Luke Treadaway (A Street Cat Named Bob, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, The Hollow Crown) and Imogen Poots (A Long Way Down, Jane Eyre) in James Macdonald’s critically acclaimed, 5 star production of Edward Albee’s landmark play, captured live for cinemas from the Harold Pinter Theatre, London.
James Macdonald’s blistering production. Intoxicatingly good. Imelda Staunton and Conleth Hill are superb.
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.
A fierce revival. Conleth Hill is superb. Exquisite.
