Edward Albee’s Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf

Concert or Performance

20 Jan 2022 to 23 Jan 2022 Once Only Event

Fear and loathing in a new light.

Edward Albee’s booze-fuelled cage fight between some of the most complex anti-heroes in the theatrical canon is the stuff of theatre legend. Now acclaimed First Nations director and actor Margaret Harvey (Black Medea, RAN: Remote Area Nurse) pulls the rug out from under a whole new generation of viewers with a modern, race-conscious and revealingly Australian interrogation of this dinner-dive into illusion, identity and desire

Academic couple George and Martha have invited their new colleagues, Nick and Honey, over for a friendly drink. As the alcohol flows, the conversation darkens, and the mood sours. Edward Albee’s scalding portrait of 1960s America erupted onto the Broadway stage in 1962 and burned up the big screen in 1966 with Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor, captivating audiences ever since.

Central to Harvey’s vision is her brilliantly disruptive choice of actors: Wagadagam man and star of the ABC’s Mabo Jimi Bani is George; screen and stage star Susan Prior is the vitriolic Martha; Juanita Navas-Nguyen and Rashidi Edward are Honey and Nick. State Theatre Company South Australia presents an American classic for an Australia at the crossroads.
