Edward Albees Who’s afraid of Virginia Woolf?

Det Kongelige Teater


t is two in the morning at home with Martha and George, a married couple. The bar is well stocked. Martha has invited the new young neighbours, Nick and Honey, to an afterparty and a hazardous game without rules. George has no idea, and the guests are on the doorstep. An unforgettable night awaits.

George and Martha play a deadly game with each other as adversaries. A game played best with curious spectators. Only when the prey is skinned, and they smell blood does love make an appearance.

Edward Albee’s psychological drama from 1962 divided the waters with its shameless depiction of the darkest sides of human nature. It is now considered a masterpiece of modern theatre.
