Theatre news

FOLLOWING the enormously successful opening of James Macdonald’s new production of Edward Albee’s enduring masterpiece, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, producers have announced that it will be broadcast live to cinemas throughout the UK and beyond as part of National Theatre Live.

The broadcast will take place on May 18, 2017, at 7.30pm and tickets go on sale at the beginning of April. For details, visit your local cinema website.

The run of the critically acclaimed production continues at the Harold Pinter Theatre, with tickets available through the Box Office until May 27.

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.

Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? stars Imelda Staunton, Conleth Hill, Imogen Poots and Luke Treadaway.
