Mary Moody Northen Theatre, the award-winning producing arm of the St. Edward’s University Theatre Program, presents Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf, the lauded American drama by Edward Albee, running November 11 - 21, 2010.

Albee’s powerful 1962 tale of love, politics and marriage slams onto the stage in a dynamic acting tour-de-force. Middle-aged academic George and his wife Martha invite a new professor and his wife over for a nightcap. The night of intellectual fun and games descends into marital warfare as the older couple employs the younger as pawns in their tense psychological battle. Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? remains as pertinent, thrilling and, ultimately, devastating today as when it catapulted Albee to fame. Featuring Equity guests Babs George and Ev Lunning, Jr.

Recommended for mature audiences.

“[A] timeless play…unforgettable power.” (Ben Brantley, NY Times)
