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

Where to start? First of all, the playwriting: It's as genuine, moving, and touching as Our Town. In a year or two How to Write a New Book for the Bible will be performed everywhere. Next, the acting: I've gone to many plays In New York City, on and off Broadway. The acting is as good or better as any I've seen in New York. The two main actors, the woman who plays the mother and her son, the narrator, are able to move from deepest grief to a lighthearted quip in the blink of an eye. I noticed several times that you could hear a pin drop throughout the entire performance. The direction is superb, as was the staging. I can't think of a single yea but...MKA in Seattle

Writers are told to write what they know. But as Bill Cain discovers in writing about his own family, sometimes those we are closest to are the biggest mysteries of all. From the writer of Equivocation comes a beautiful new play taken from Cain’s own experiences caring for his dying mother. He asks the questions that speak to the heart of every family: What will never change…and what has to? A Jesuit priest as well as a playwright, Cain brings a fascinating view to this simple, powerful illustration of why the details of our lives and loves matter.
The show contains mild profanity.
