Edward Albee's

Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?

Directed by Margaret Harvey

NOTHING GOOD EVER HAPPENS AFTER 3AM.

Nick and his wife Honey are new in town and accept an invitation to an intimate afterparty at the home of George and Martha. As the spirits flow and the conversation grows ominous, the four find themselves locked in a cruel sparring match with a hidden agenda. In the small hours of the night, this boozy gathering becomes a frenzy of savage insults, spiteful mind games and wicked humiliations.

By the time the sun rises, all secrets will be laid bare, and none of them will ever be the same again.

Edward Albee's electrifying masterpiece veers between reality and illusion, between hatred and desire. This play shouldn't be funny, but it is — caustic, spectacularly petty and brutal. Is this a portrait of a marriage in crisis, or the most sophisticated game of torture you've ever witnessed?

Director Margaret Harvey delivers a fresh and unique vision of this classic in a captivating new production from State Theatre Company South Australia.
