EDWARD Albee's play that spawned an Oscar winning film, Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf? is to be presented by Ilfracombe's Studio Theatre at the Landmark on Friday.
This deliciously toxic, acidly funny play centres on two warring couples playing humiliating games on each other. When middle-aged Martha and her husband George are joined by the younger Nick and Honey for late night drinks after a party the stage is set for a night of drunken recriminations and revelations. Battle lines are drawn as Martha and George drag their guests into their own private hell of a marriage.
Alan Bailey directs a local cast for Studio Theatre.
