6 June - Who's Afraid of Virgina Woolf?

I think that after our reading last month our run on Ibsen has come to an inglorious end!  Although reportedly his most favoured play, The Master Builder was not such a hit with our group!

This month we have a classic American play by Edward Albee.  Albee's Three Tall Women was my directorial debut and it remains a favourite.

Before saying something (via Wikipedia) about this month's play I'd like to say ...

THANK YOU

to Kyung-Sook for offering to host as I am unable to.  I am sure that she, and you, will discover just how much fun I have welcoming you!


Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?


Famous as a film starring Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor, this play was first staged in 1962. It examines the complexities of the marriage of a middle-aged couple, Martha and George. Late one evening, after a university faculty party, they receive an unwitting younger couple, Nick and Honey, as guests, and draw them into their bitter and frustrated relationship.
