Stage Coach Theatre has decided to bring back Edward Albee's WHO'S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF? to Boise. This play won the 1963 Tony and Drama Desk Awards for Best Play; as well as being made into the 1966 movie starring Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton, George Segal, and Sandy Dennis.

This drama is a 3 hour production with 3 acts and 2 - 10 minute intermissions, so plan your night accordingly.

The story is about George and Martha and how their relationship is compared to what it used to be, so they decide to add some spice to their lives by playing games with others. (You get the sense they have done this before) George is a long-time professor at the university where Martha's father is the president. Their prey this night is Nick and Honey, a young couple. Nick is a new professor at the university, and he and Honey have not been married very long.

Jeffrey Thomson as George and Elizabeth Greeley as Martha are vicious to each other and their guests, Nick and Honey (Bryan Romano and Erin Edwards). See what games they get up to and if Nick and Honey are able to win, or even survive.

The actors deserve recognition for keeping up their pace for the length of the show. It is hard to keep the drama in a drama for that length of time, comedies are easy comparatively. If you want to see a drama be sure to get to Stage Coach Theatre before it closes.

Teresa Rodrick My name is Teresa Rodrick, I was born in Edmonds, Washington - grew up in Mountlake Terrace (WA), married a man from Everett (WA) and my folks moved to Lake Stevens (WA). So when asked, I say I am from the Seattle Area. Way back when I was in high school, I was given lines to perform to open a play (I was a choir girl) and I still remember a part of the line: “No one stopped to give him gladsome looks.” I was then in two other plays. From there I married my husband in June 1990. He was military and we moved around a bit. Our children were born during this time. We lived in England for 2 years, Germany for 6 years and moved to San Antonio, Texas. In San Antonio, I decided I had put my own career off long enough and started going to Palo Alto Community College. I got my Associates Degree in Drama in May 2005. From San Antonio, we moved back to England for just over 3 years. I did one stint in community theatre there. From there we moved to Boise, Idaho. I received my Bachelors in Arts in Theatre Arts with an emphasis in Secondary Education in May 2012 from Boise State University.
