WHAT’S ON MAY: Casting announced for Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf
You are cordially invited to a ‘Come Dine With Me’ from Hell!
A marathon night of drink, debauchery and duplicity develops after Martha and her husband George invite unsuspecting young couple, Nick and Honey, round for a nightcap. Drink flows, spiked with vicious humour, acerbic wit and tempestuous verbal sparring. However, as night turns to morning, searing secrets are exposed. Putting the ‘fun’ into dysfunctional, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? wryly exposes the dark attraction in relationships and the bitterest ties that bind us all.
Leading the cast, as the iconic Martha, will be Scottish actress Sara Stewart. Sara will be familiar to viewers from appearances in The Night Manager, Rebus, Batman Begins and Doctor Foster. Starring alongside Sara are Rose Reynolds, Robin Kingsland and Paul Albertson. Directed by Michael Emans.
Following acclaimed productions of Arthur Miller’s All My Sons and Michael Frayn’s Tony award-winning Democracy, Rapture returns to the Theatre Royal, with Edward Albee’s thrilling play. In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the multi-Oscar winning film starring Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor, this is a rare opportunity to experience an iconic American masterpiece.
