Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf? Thursday 28 - Friday 29 September 2017 The Brindley Theatre
A First For The Brindley and Northwest Group
Plays are often described as being ‘iconic’, and none fits that description better than Edward Albee's ‘Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?’ which is due to be performed at the Brindley Theatre, Runcorn in September.
This ground-breaking work was adapted for the big screen in 1966, starring Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor, subsequently winning Taylor the Oscar for Best Actress and Sandy Dennis for Best Supporting Actress.
Following on from their sell-out performance of ‘Blithe Spirit’, Armchair Theatre return with Albee's play, which is currently enjoying an extremely successful revival in London’s West End starring Imelda Staunton and Conleth Hill.
“We are extremely lucky to have secured the Rights for this play,” said Phillip Wade, co-founder of Armchair Theatre. “It really is a fantastic script – audiences are in for a real treat as they are taken on a rollercoaster ride of emotions. If you like drama, intrigue and a ‘twist in the tale’ then this is definitely for you!” Tickets
