The Harold Pinter Theatre welcomes a classic play this February as Edward Albee’s Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf makes a welcome return to the West End.
Director James Macdonald will lead a cast that includes the renowned Imelda Staunton, making this the latest in a long line of plays in which the veteran performer has taken a lead role. Alongside Conleth Hill she will take on the iconic role of Martha as the latest generation of London theatregoers has the pleasure of experiencing this critically acclaimed classic, undoubtedly making it one of 2017’s must-sees.
So more than 50 years since it was first seen on Broadway, Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf? Once again introduces audiences to the characters of Martha and George (Hill), a married couple, the former of whom is related to the college president and the latter of whom is a professor. We meet them in the middle of the night as Nick and Honey have been invited to their home for drinks. But the new professor and his wife are going to get more than they bargained for with Martha and George as their tumultuous relationship comes to blows. With game-playing and anger, Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf? continues through to its devastating conclusion
There are many reasons to assume that this will be a must-see production when it opens in February. Not only is this a classic play from a world-renowned writer (whose death made headlines in 2016), it also stars one of the nation’s favourite performers in Imelda Staunton. In recent years she has been no stranger to the West End, appearing in a range of well known shows, including Entertaining Mr Sloane at the Trafalgar Studios, Good People at the Noel Coward Theatre, Sweeney Todd at the Adelphi Theatre and Gypsy at the Savoy Theatre.
Add to these theatre roles her long list of film credits as well, including Vera Drake and The Awakening, and it is clear to see why she is one of the most in-demand performers in the country.
And this will ensure all eyes are on the Harold Pinter Theatre in 2017 as Imelda Staunton performs in Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf? at the venue from Thursday 9th March 2017 (previews from Wednesday 22nd February 2017).
