Edward Albee's Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?

Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?

Directed by Joe Canuso

Honorary Producer Wyncote Foundation
 
Featuring Pearce Bunting, Catharine Slusar, Emilie Krause and Jake Blouch

After a faculty get-together, George and Martha invite their younger counterparts, Nick and Honey, over for a night-cap that quickly spirals into an evening of wicked psychological games. Exile favorites take the stage in Edward Albee’s cultural landmark that has been riveting audiences for over 50 years and ruthlessly tears down the façade of the American family.
