Edward Albee’s Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? opens on a small New England college. Unmotivated middle-aged associate history professor George and his vicious gin-soaked wife Martha have just returned home from a late-night cocktail party hosted by Martha’s father, the school’s president. She invites the college’s newest young professor and his mousy wife back to their place. Over the course of the next few hours, as the liquor sets in and tensions flare, George and Martha drag the couple into their sadistic head games. The night erupts into a no-holds-barred torrent of anger and verbal assault as each couple is faced with the truth of their corrupted courtships. This turbulent theater classic was the winner of the 1963 Tony for Best Play and now celebrated director Chris Jackson heads up Pulse Theatre Chicago’s production at City Lit Theater.
