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
Reviews & Ratings
In some ways, August Wilson looms larger than life at Seattle Rep. Literally—he is memorialized in a statue just south of there, welcoming people into the Seattle Center campus via a pathway that also bears his name.
He looms figuratively, too. There is a sense of wonder when talking about Mr. Wilson’s legacy at the theatre. After all, the United States is the only country to have produced all of his plays (his 10-play Pittsburgh Cycle, as well as his one-man show How I Learned What I Learned).
When Mr. Wilson passed away in 2005, he became for many like a character his plays: working diligently to illuminate the African American experience in the United States during the twentieth century.
