Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?

Be afraid. Be very afraid. This diabolical play will take you into the depths of matrimonial hell. Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? is a battle of words that are as deadly as slowly sipping poison. You will be taken on a journey of the emotional destruction of a marriage where the dialogue represents verbal missiles of buried bitterness. When young couple, Nick and Honey are invited to Martha and George’s home at 2am, after a university party, they had no idea of the marital slaughter they were about to witness. Martha has the aggression of a Pit Bull and George’s passive aggressive approach has just as much bite. The verbal vomit between them has, for the past twenty-three years of their marriage, been fuelled with an endless supply of alcohol, used for medicinal purposes, of course.

It certainly appeared as if George and Martha took pleasure in luring young, hopeful, ambitious couples to their home as victims to their warped mind games. To George and Martha, their emotional destruction was a game; a game to test whether there were any feelings left inside them to destroy. Throughout their twenty three years of marriage, they nursed a secret that was the reason for their festering bitterness; a secret that was off limits in their verbal attacks, until this particular evening with Nick and Honey. It was the mention of their secret that would be the ultimate blow that finally cuts Martha to the core, and would end their game as hours later the sun begins to rise and their guests have been drained of their senses.
