Ferndale Repertory Theatre and the Arcata Playhouse present Edward Albee's wickedly funny and tragic Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf directed by Jane Hill.
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 and his wife to their home for an after-party night-cap after a faculty soiree. As the alcohol flows and dawn approaches, the young couple is drawn into George and Martha's toxic games until the evening reaches its climax in a moment of devastating truth-telling.
Albee made his Broadway debut in 1962 with Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf with a Tony Award for Best Play.
Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf marks the third collaboration with Arcata Playhouse. We wanted to bring Ferndale Rep to Arcata once a year and have found that February is the perfect time to do this. Previous productions included Three Penny Opera (2016) and All My Sons (2017)
All four of the cast members of Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf are making their Ferndale Repertory debut: Daniel Baer (George), Ruthi Engelke (Martha), Holly Portman (Honey) and Travis Morris (Nick). The production design team includes Cecilia Beaton (sets), Michael Foster (lighting), and Cindy Shepard (costumes).
