Published 13 March 2017

Take a multi-award winning cast, add in an immortal theatrical text by a revered playwright, and sit back and watch the sparks fly – Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf? looks terrifying.

This exciting West End revival of Edward Albee’s acclaimed marital drama sees multi-Olivier Award winners Imelda Staunton and Conleth Hill star opposite Luke Treadaway (himself an Olivier recipient) and Imogen Poots (in her West End debut) for a limited season only, and from the looks of these production photos, the acclaimed production is truly lighting up the Harold Pinter Theatre stage.

In the early hours of the morning on the campus of an American college, Martha, much to her husband George’s displeasure, has invited the new professor Nick and his wife Honey to their home for some after-party drinks. As the alcohol flows and dawn approaches, the young couple are drawn into George and Martha’s toxic games until the evening reaches its climax in a moment of devastating truth-telling.
