"The most important American playwright of his generation!" The New York Times on Edward Albee
A marathon night of late night drinking, debauchery and duplicity develops as Martha and her husband George invite unsuspecting young couple, Nick and Honey, around for a nightcap. Drinks flow, spiked with vicious humour, acerbic wit and tempestuous verbal sparring. However, as night turns to morning, searing secrets are exposed.
Putting the ‘fun’ into dysfunctional, Woolf wryly exposes the dark attraction in relationships. In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the multi-Oscar winning film (starring Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor), this is a rare opportunity to experience an iconic American masterpiece.
Featuring Rose Reynolds, Robin Kingsland and Paul Albertson, with Sara Stewart leading the cast as the iconic Martha.
Sara will be well known to audiences from her appearances in Doctor Foster, The Night Manager and Batman Begins. She also recently appeared on the West End stage in Hay Fever and has played opposite Gwyneth Paltrow in Proof.
Direction is by Rapture Artistic Director Michael Emans. Frances Collier will design the set and costumes. Lighting Design is by Mark Doubleday and Sound Design is by Danny Krass.
