Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?

A Drama by Edward Albee and directed by Larry Dennis

Run Dates: Apr. 18, 19, 24, 25, 26, 27, May 1, 2, 3, 2014.

 

In this classic play, George and Martha (theatre’s most dysfunctional couple) invite young Nick and Honey over for a nightcap and draw them into their bitter and frustrated relationship, The evening devolves into an exercise of wits, a war of words in which the past is fair game. After an evening of hilarious “fun and games,” the truth about George and Martha’s relationship and son comes to light.

Set amidst campus politics, Albee’s provocative dark comedy examines why we are sometimes cruelest to those we love most. The play will surprise and exhilarate the audiences.

George, a professor at a small college, and his wife, Martha, have just returned home, drunk from a Saturday night party. Martha announces she has invited a young couple—an opportunistic new professor at the college and his shatteringly naïve new bride—to stop by for a nightcap. When they arrive the charade begins. The drinks flow and suddenly inhibitions melt.

It becomes clear that Martha is determined to seduce the young professor, and George couldn’t care less. But underneath the edgy banter, which is crossfired between both couples, lurks an undercurrent of tragedy and despair. George and Martha’s inhuman bitterness toward one another is provoked by the enormous personal sadness that they have pledged to keep to themselves: a secret that has seemingly been the foundation for their relationship. In the end, the mystery in which the distressed George and Martha have taken refuge is exposed, once and for all revealing the degrading mess they have made of their lives.

The move to our various facilities saw our rent increase from $1,000 per year to close to $20,000 per year, currently. That coupled with increases in utilities and production costs has increased our annual budget to approximately $48,000. This has only spurred the creativeness of our directors, actors and technical volunteers asking them to do great things on what can laughingly be described as shoe-string budgets.

Your donation will bring us closer to our new roof. Thank you in advance for helping us ‘RAISE THE ROOF’. See you at the concert and please invite your friends!
