Carnivals of the Heart in association with The Playhouse presents

Who’s afraid of Virginia Woolf ?

Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? is a 1962 play by Edward Albee. It 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. The play is in three acts, normally taking a little less than three hours to perform, with two 10-minute intermissions. The title is a pun on the song “Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf?” from Walt Disney’s Three Little Pigs (1933), substituting the name of the celebrated English author Virginia Woolf. Martha and George repeatedly sing this version of the song throughout the play.

Carnivals of the Heart will present this play as their first slot for 2016 following successful productions of other American classics A Streetcar Named Desire and The Great Gatsby. Directed by Darryl Spijkers (CATA Best Director for To Kill a Mockingbird 2014) teams up with Rory Currin on lights and Zanodean Cassiem on set. His cast is a handful of experienced actors: Yvonne Copley as Martha, Nigel Sweet and George, David Shelver as Nick and Sam Taylor as Honey.

Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? won both the 1963 Tony Award for Best Play and the 1962–63 New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award for Best Play. It is frequently revived on the modern stage. The film adaptation was released in 1966, written by Ernest Lehman and starring Richard Burton, Elizabeth Taylor, George Segal and Sandy Dennis. The dialogue in the first act of the play has been hailed by some critics as some of the greatest in all of the American theatre. Often critiqued for its extensive three act length, Spijkers has made a cut to capture the thrilling dram in an electrifying two hours.
The play opens at the Playhouse Theatre in Somerset West on 21, 22, 23 January and runs again at the Artscape Arena on 4, 5 and 6 February. Tickets are R100 through Computicket. Bookings are now open.
