WESTON, Vt. – Weston Playhouse Theatre Company presents the famed, thought-provoking drama, Edward Albee’s “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” Aug. 15 through Sept. 1 at the Weston Playhouse. Show times are Tuesday through Saturday, 7:30 p.m.; Wednesday and Saturday, 2 p.m.; and Sunday, 3 p.m.
It’s two o’clock in the morning when George and Martha return home from a college faculty party, but the night has only just begun. An evening of fun and games takes a turn as the line between reality and illusion blurs. As stirring and provocative today as it was when it premiered, this classic asks what we are willing to do to and for the people we love.
Director Mike Donahue says, “‘Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?’ is at heart a great love story – shockingly funny, provocatively honest, and drunkenly raucous – that illuminates the degree to which deep love and decades-long partnership sometimes require an honesty that can be ugly, painful, even destructive…but worth it.”
Donahue previously directed “Uncle Vanya” at Weston Playhouse. Donahue is a recipient of a Fulbright to Berlin, the Drama League Fall Fellowship, The Boris Sagal Fellowship at Williamstown, and he was the artistic director of the Yale Summer Cabaret for two seasons.
“Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” creative team includes scenic designer Dane Laffrey, costume designer Anya Klepikov, who previously worked with Donahue on Chekhov’s “Uncle Vanya” at Weston, lighting designer Scott Zielinski, and sound designer Sinan Refik Zafar.
Edward Albee’s “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” plays at Weston Playhouse, 12 Park St. in Weston. Single tickets are available online and by calling the Weston Box Office at 802-824-5288. Gift certificates can be purchased online at www.westonplayhouse.org.
