About

Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf

By Edward Albee

Come to the party, but don’t play the drinking games. The lights are on late at George and Martha’s, as two couples in a quiet college town turn a nightcap into an all-out, all-night fight. Peek through their windows and uncover the devastating truth behind the illusions.

From the Artistic Director
There are lots of good plays and probably even more bad plays, but there are only a handful of legendary plays—those plays that shook the theater, jolting us out of old ways of thinking and forever changing what comes after. These are my favorite plays because we are altered by our encounter with them. Edward Albee’s Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf still grabs us as intensely it did half a century ago with its exposéof dreams and self-destructive fantasies.

Relationship Drama/Comedy Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?
Greensboro News and Record
September 19, 2019

Triad Stage opens its 19th season with a classic American play that takes a sometimes funny, sometimes painful and often unsettling look into married life.

Edward Albee’s “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” tells the story of two couples who meet at a university faculty party and return to the older couple’s home for a drink. That couple, George and Martha, soon spill their most intimate secrets and the bitter feelings that exist between them. The young couple, Honey and Nick, learn just how manipulative George and Martha can be. The play will run through Sept. 29 at Triad Stage.

Triad Stage Shouldn't Be Taken For Granted
Greensboro News and Record
September 18, 2019

After an evening attending “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf,” I again realized how fortunate we are to have a nationally recognized, locally grown professional regional theater in the heart of Greensboro.

It is easy to take Triad Stage for granted, as it has been producing theater prolifically since 2002. However, the longevity and growth is not something to take for granted; it requires a “village” of audience members, patrons and creative people to “raise” a theater.
