• National Theatre Live: “Edward Albee’s Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf”
by Edward Albee
Wednesday, Oct. 18, 7 p.m.
Josephine Louis Theater
Imelda Staunton (“Gypsy,” “Vera Drake,” the “Harry Potter” films), Conleth Hill, Luke Treadaway and Imogen Poots star in James Macdonald’s new production of Edward Albee’s landmark play.
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 some after-party drinks. 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.
