Wilmslow Green Room presents “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?”


Article submitted by Hilary Pinnock of Wilmslow Green Room


This modern classic drama was first performed on the stage in 1962 and later produced as a famous film starring Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton in 1966.

It’s the early hours of the morning on the campus of an American college.

Martha (Lise Nivern Banks), much to her husband George’s (John Keen) displeasure, has invited new professor Nick (Karl Greenwood) and his wife Honey (Morgan Wild) to their home for some after-party drinks.

But as the alcohol flows and dawn approaches, the young couple are drawn into George and Martha’s toxic mind games until the evening reaches its climax in a moment of devastating truth-telling.

Directed by Mark Jephcott, Wilmslow Green Room is pleased to open its 2019-2020 season with this well-known and seldom staged production of Edward Albee’s “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?”

The play runs from Saturday 12th to Saturday 19th October 2019 and all performances start at 7.30pm.

Tickets are available from the Green Room box office, telephone 01625 540 933 or online via the theatre website.
