Further Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf? casting announced

First Published 28 October 2016, Last Updated 28 October 2016

Olivier Award-winner Luke Treadaway and acclaimed film actress Imogen Poots have joined the previously announced Imelda Staunton and Conleth Hill in the upcoming West End revival of Edward Albee’s Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf?.

Luke, whose performance as Christopher in the internationally lauded National Theatre production of The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time won him the Olivier Award for Best Actor, will play college professor Nick. Award-winning screen actress Imogen, who made her breakthrough as Tammy in 28 Weeks Later and has gone on to star in The Look Of Love, She’s Funny That Way and Filth, makes her West End debut as his wife Honey.

The landmark play, penned by multi Tony and Pulitzer prize-winning playwright Albee, will return to London’s Theatreland to play a limited season of 13 weeks at the Harold Pinter Theatre from 22 February 2017.

The play centres on events in the early hours of the morning on the campus of an American college, where Martha (played by Imelda) and her husband George (Conleth) invite Nick and Honey to their home for after-party drinks.

But with alcohol flowing and dawn approaching, the young couple become ensnared in George and Martha’s toxic games until the evening reaches a devastating climax.

The show’s run at the Harold Pinter Theatre follows the conclusion of the run of its current occupants, the Olivier Award-winning Kinks musical Sunny Afternoon, tomorrow night, and the upcoming West End transfer of Mark Rylance’s and Louis Jenkins’ acclaimed comic new play, Nice Fish, which begins previews on 15 November.
