What's it all about?

Imelda Staunton (Martha) and Conleth Hill (George) star in a new production of multi Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Edward Albee’s 5-star play: Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? directed by James Macdonald.

What's the story?

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 in it?

Imelda Staunton returns to the West End after her Olivier Award-winning performances as Mama Rose in Gypsy and Mrs Lovett in Sweeney Todd. Her many theatre and film credits include Edward Albee’s A Delicate Balance at the Almeida Theatre, her Bafta Award-winning performance in the title role for Vera Drake, and as Dolores Umbridge in the Harry Potter films. 

Conleth Hill is perhaps best known for his role as Lord Varys in the HBO television production Game of Thrones. Conleth’s extensive theatre credits, include Quartermaine’s TermsThe Cherry Orchard at the National Theatre and The Producers for which he won an Olivier Award. Hill also won an Olivier Award and Tony Award nomination for Best Actor for Stones In His Pockets.
