Who’s Afrraid of Virginia Woolf opens May 8

Tickets are available at the Capitol Theatre Box office during box office hours: Monday to Thursday, 3:00 to 6:00 pm.

Portal Players Dramatic Society is proud to bring you Edward Albee’s iconic play “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf”.

George, a professor at a small college, and his wife, Martha, have just returned home, drunk from a Saturday night party. Martha announces, amidst general profanity, that she has invited a young couple—an opportunistic new professor at the college and his shatteringly naïve new bride—to stop by for a nightcap. When they arrive the charade begins. The drinks flow and suddenly inhibitions melt. It becomes clear that Martha is determined to seduce the young professor, and George couldn’t care less. But underneath the edgy banter, which is crossfired between both couples, lurks an undercurrent of tragedy and despair. George and Martha’s inhuman bitterness toward one another is provoked by the enormous personal sadness that they have pledged to keep to themselves: a secret that has seemingly been the foundation for their relationship. In the end, the mystery in which the distressed George and Martha have taken refuge is exposed, once and for all revealing the degrading mess they have made of their lives.

Winner of the 1963 Tony Award for Best Play. The Broadway production of this Edward Albee classic was a shattering and memorable experience and proclaimed the author as a major American playwright. “This is a Big One.” —NY Journal-American. “…a scorching, scalding, revealing and completely engrossing drama.” —Women’s Wear Daily. “…a brilliant piece of writing.” —NY Herald-Tribune.

Tickets are available at the Capitol Theatre Box office during box office hours: Monday to Thursday, 3:00 to 6:00 pm. Tickets are also available online through Brown Paper Tickets.
