“Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” is on stage this weekend through Nov. 19 at Cambria Center for the Arts Theatre.
John Battalino directs Edward Albee’s play, which won the 1963 Tony Award and 1962-63 New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award for Best Play.
The cast features David Norum as George, Jill Turnbow as Martha, Tyler Lopez and Erin Parsons.
The plot revolves around George and Martha, a middle-aged couple whose relationship is charged with verbal quarrels and alcohol abuse. The couple — a history university history professor and his wife — attend a faculty mixer and invite a young biology professor and his wife over to their home afterward for a nightcap, which further fuels their quarrels.
The younger couple becomes enmeshed in the conflict, which leads to intensely personal revelations. The production is recommended for mature audiences only.
Albee’s play was made into 1966 motion picture starring Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton, George Segal and Sandy Dennis.
