About the show
After launching on Broadway in the 1960s, "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" went on to win both the Tony Award and the Critics' Circle Award for Best New Play. It was also adapted into an Oscar-winning film in 1966, starring Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton.
The show tells the dramatic story of George, a college professor, and his wife, Martha, who invite a young couple back for late-night drinks after a party -- later coercing them to partake in their merciless mind games. This latest revision stars Clare Higgins ("The Golden Compass", "Oedipus", "Downton Abbey") as Martha and Tim Pigott-Smith ("King Charles III", "Miranda", "The Jewel in the Crown") as George.
