Performance: Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf

Monday, January 9th at 7:00 p.m. in the Community Room

In a tribute to the late playwright Edward Albee (1928-2016), the WPL Play Readers will perform a reading of scenes from one of his most famous plays, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? The play examines the breakdown of the marriage of a middle-aged couple, Martha and George. Late one evening, after a university faculty party, they receive an unwitting younger couple, Nick and Honey, as guests, and draw them into their bitter and frustrated relationship.

Starring:
David Andrews as George
Mary Heffernon as Martha
Neel Pizinger as Nick
Helen Miller as Honey

Narrated by Terry Remeika
Co-Directed by Alfred Mueller and Terry Remeika
