  • Imelda Staunton and Conleth Hill star in a new production of Edward Albee's Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? at the Harold Pinter Theatre.  

    James Macdonald directs this new production of the multi Tony and Pulitzer prize-winning playwright's landmark play.

    Set in the early hours of the morning on the campus of an American college, Martha, much to her husband George’s displeasure, has invited the new professor Nick and his wife Honey to their home for some after-party drinks. As the alcohol flows and dawn approaches, the young couple are drawn into George and Martha’s toxic games until the evening reaches its climax in a moment of devastating truth-telling.
