Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? at The Algonquin Theatre
The Huntsville Theatre Company (HTC) is back at the Algonquin Theatre for the next play in their 2022/2023 season! Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? is written by Edward Albee.
Director Cydney Jones said she is excited for audiences to see this classic brought to life on stage.
"Anyone who has seen Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? will know what a huge task it is to create an original approach to these iconic and legendary characters. Over the past number of weeks, Kyla, David, Nick, and Rachel, have all done just that by taking on the deep, introspective, character work necessary to capture the essence of what makes Martha, George, Nick, and Honey, genuine, distinctive, special, and realistic, while also making them uniquely their own. The results are most resoundingly successful, authentic, truly exciting to watch, and a show you won’t want to miss!"
Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? is a multi-award-winning black comedy/drama set in 1962. It examines the complexities of the marriage of a middle-aged couple, George and Martha, when, 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. Warning that the play contains adult language, sensitive content and violence.
The cast consists of Kyla Taylor, David Walton, Nick Kulchar and Rachel Thompson.
Opening night is Thursday, February 23rd, 2023 and the show runs until Saturday, February 25th, 2023 at the Algonquin Theatre. There are three evening performances at 7pm and one matinee at 2pm. The audience is seated on the stage for an intimate experience and the show runs for three hours (with two intermissions).
