Spotlighters to Open 52nd Season with WHO'S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF?, Begin. 9/6
Spotlighters opens their 52nd Season with Edward Albee's Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, running Sept. 6 - Oct. 6, 2013. Fuzz Roark directs.
The play Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? is set on the campus of a small, New England university. It opens with the main characters, George and Martha coming home from a party at her father's house, the university president. The two of them clearly care deeply for each other, but events have turned their marriage into a nasty battle between two disenchanted, cynical enemies. Even though the pair arrives home at two o'clock in the morning, they are expecting guests: the new young math professor and his wife. What ensues is a battle royale between George and Martha for the attention and domination of their guests, and each other.
Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? won both the 1963 Tony Award for Best Play and the 1962-'63 New York Drama Critics' CircleAward for Best Play. It was selected for the 1963 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, but after some discussion, the award was vacated for 1963, stating that the play was too scandalous and immoral.
The production stars Valerie Lash as Martha, Jim Hart as George, Zak Zeeks as Nick, and Mary Czar as Honey.
