Edward Albee created a masterwork of modern theatre with Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, shocking audiences since it premiered on Broadway in 1962 and earning the Tony Award and New York Drama Critic’s Circle Award for Best Play. Set on the campus of an East coast college, this intense dark comedy shines a blinding light on one, truth-exposing - booze and bantered - night in the lives of two couples: Nick, a young biology teacher, and his rather plain wife, Honey; and the older George, a failed history professor, and his bawdy, invective wife, Martha.

The play is an evening fueled by alcohol, debauchery, and disdain, as taunts become jabs, and jabs become attacks, building the night to a hideous, cruel frenzy, and forcing everyone to face their most deep-seated illusions and self-deceptions.
