Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf
August 10 - September 29, 2018 / Thursday - Saturday at 7:30pm
On the campus of a small New England college, George and Martha invite a new professor and his wife home for a nightcap. As the cocktails flow, the young couple find themselves caught in the crossfire of a savage marital war where the combatants attack the self deceptions they forged for their own survival. Edward Albee’s hilarious and harrowing masterpiece, WHO'S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF, showcases one of theatre’s most notoriously dysfunctional couples. The Broadway production was a shattering and memorable experience and proclaimed the author as a major American playwright.
CAST: (Aug 10 - Sept 1) Jeff Morgan, Jennifer Lee, Lucas Scott, & Michelle Pokopac. (Sept 6 - 29) Chip Powell, Emily Reily Russell, Alek President, & Britt Douyon.
Winner of the 1963 Tony Award for Best Play.
"Woolf is a love story about a couple who make the difficult choice to live with the truth rather than in the more comforting dark of illusion, and this, in spite of any bumps along the way, ultimately comes across powerfully at Pinch ‘n’ Ouch. The play must have knocked audiences senseless when it opened way back in 1962, and it clearly still has the power to do so." - Andrew Alexander, Arts Atl
“Jennifer Lee is a convincing, powerful, heartbreaking Martha. Jeffrey Charles Morgan, in his college professor sweater, retaliates against Martha’s taunts with passive aggression, sullenness, stubbornness... Ms. Pokopac shows a delicacy and vulnerability on Honey’s part that is quite moving. And Mr. Scott’s sexiness and swagger, threatening to George and alluring to Martha, serve him very well... Grant McGowen’s set works perfectly in this intimate space. And I cannot believe this is Brian Ashton Smith’s directing debut; it’s remarkable… The play’s power is intact. “Virginia Woolf” is in town; if you love 'total theatre,' go.” -Manning Harris, Atlanta InTown Paper
