Edward Albee’s classic celebrates 60 years

Alan Committie and Robyn Scott star in Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf at Theatre On The Bay.

Gloucester Productions presents Edward Albee’s Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf until Saturday October 8 at Theatre On The Bay.

Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf is regarded by many as one of the more powerful explorations of relationship dynamics and this year it celebrates its 60th anniversary.

Back in 1962, audiences and critics alike could not get enough of Edward Albee’s masterful play. A dark comedy, it portrays husband and wife George and Martha in a searing night of dangerous fun and games with a younger couple, Nick and Honey, who get caught up in the battle.

By the evening’s end, a stunning, almost unbearable revelation provides a climax that has shocked audiences for years.

Sylvaine Strike directs a stellar-cast including Alan Committie, Robyn Scott, Sanda Shandu and Berenice Barbier making her professional stage debut.

The production carries a suggested age restriction of 13.

Tickets cost from R125 to R250. Book through Computicket or Theatre On The Bay box office on 021 438 3300.
