Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?


“The most important American playwright of his generation!”  The New York Times on Edward Albee 

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 DemocracyRapture 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.

The most talked about play this season. Unmissable!
