Our new branding is official, and it coincides with the launch of our new Iconic Season: Theatre Plays Women. Kicking off with Edward Albee’s Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, followed by Tennessee Williams’ A Streetcar Named Desire (Autumn 2017), both plays are not only iconic in their status, but feature some of the strongest, formidable, complex, flawed, and yes iconic female characters ever to be written.
About the Play & Cast
A marathon night of drink, debauchery and duplicity develops after Martha and her husband George invite unsuspecting young couple, Nick and Honey, round for a nightcap. Drink flows, spiked with vicious humour, acerbic wit and tempestuous verbal sparring. However, as night turns to morning, searing secrets are exposed.
Putting the ‘fun’ into dysfunctional, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf wryly exposes the dark attraction in relationships and the bitterest ties that bind us all.
Starring Rose Reynolds, Robin Kingsland and Paul Albertson, with Scottish actress Sara Stewart (The Night Manager, Rebus, Batman Begins, Doctor Foster) leading the cast as Martha. Directed by Michael Emans, design by Frances Collier and Lighting by Mark Doubleday.
Following acclaimed productions of Arthur Miller’s All My Sons and Michael Frayn’s Tony award-winning Democracy, Rapture returns with Edward Albee’s thrilling play. In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the multi-Oscar winning film (Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor), this is a rare opportunity to experience an iconic American masterpiece.
