Exciting news theatre fans. One of London theatre's most acclaimed actresses is set to star in one of the theatre's greatest plays. Imelda Staunton, who recently won the Olivier Award for Best Actress in a Musical for her spectacular performance as Rose in Gypsy, will return to the London stage in a new production of Edward Albee's Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf.
Previews for the show are set to begin at the Harold Pinter Theatre on February 22, 2017, where it will play thru May 27. Starring opposite Ms. Staunton in the role of her husband George is fellow Olivier award-winner Conleth Hill ((Game Of Thrones, Stones In His Pockets, The Producers).
Rounding out the cast are Olivier award-winner Luke Treadaway (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, Fortitude, The Hollow Crown) and Imogen Poots, in her West End debut (A Long Way Down, Jane Eyre and Me And Orson Wells). Pretty impressive cast don't you think?
Now for those of you that are not familiar with the show, here is a brief synopsis to tell you a little more. Set over the course of one evening, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf, tells the story of long suffering married couple George and Martha, who spend the evening entertaining George's fellow colleague Nick and his wife Honey at their home.
As day turns into night, alcohol, not too mention some hidden secrets soon turn both couples world's upside down. Now that sounds like my type of show. Tickets for this award winning show are now on sale. Not only that, but we are selling it. Get your tickets to see Edward Albee's Who's Afraid for Virginia Woolf in London at the Harold Pinter Theatre. It is theatre at it's finest. Until next time theatre fans.
