By Edward Albee

Auckland Theatre Company
George, a disillusioned academic, and Martha, his caustic wife, invite young up-and-coming tutor Nick and his fragile wife Honey for a nightcap at their home on the campus of a small New England college. During the long, liquor-drenched night, fun and games quickly turn dark and dangerous as Martha exposes a secret which George cannot forgive.
Selected for the 1963 Pulitzer Prize, winner of five Tony Awards; as ingenious and stimulating as it was in 1962, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? is regarded by many to be the greatest play of modern American theatre.
