Pam MacKinnon directs Tracy Letts
(author of the Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning August: Osage County
) and Amy Morton
(Tony Award nominee for August: Osage County
), Madison Dirks
and Carrie Coon
in the 50th anniversary production of Edward Albee's classic Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?
When history professor George (Letts) and his wife Martha (Morton) invite new biology professor Nick (Dirks) and his wife Honey (Coon) back to their home for drinks after a faculty function, things quickly heat up as the couples become embroiled in a series of savagely comic verbal "games" which push the limits of their relationships and expose dormant fears and frustrations. The Steppenwolf Theatre Company
production plays Broadway's Booth Theatre.
