A biting dark comedy and gut-wrenching psychological portrait of the breakdown of a marriage, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? has been a mainstay in American theater since it won the 1963 Tony Award for Best Play and was immortalized in a film adaptation starring Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. Written by the acclaimed Edward Albee, the story follows George and Martha, a middle-aged couple who invite a younger husband and wife over for drinks and, over the course of the evening, use their guests as pawns in increasingly cruel mind games, leading to a devastating revelation. Razor-sharp dialogue and incisive character portraits make Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? one for your theatrical bucket list. Learn More

The Goldstar ticket was in back row of main floor of Seattle Rep and the dialogue was hard to decipher from that distance and with the accents. I guess it was OK--didn't grab me and I found the performances of the women a little flat--left after first intermission so perhaps the second act was a little better. I think sitting closer would and could make all the difference to enjoying the production.

August, 1936, rural Ireland. Step into the kitchen of the five fiercely proud Mundy sisters, a place for talking, laughing, and lively dancing—moments that defy the hardships of their daily life. Their brother, a missionary, has just returned from Uganda, and the sisters find themselves each on the brink of momentous change. Friel’s Tony-Award-winning play captures a beautiful and exuberant sliver of these women’s lives, a summer where love—and everything else—seemed possible.
