Imelda Staunton stars in Edward Albee's Virginia Woolf

Sonia Friedman will produce a new production of Edward Albee’s Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf? starring Imelda Staunton and Conleth Hill at the Harold Pinter Theatre for a limited 13 week season.

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 Nick and his wife Honey to their home for some after-party drinks. As the alcohol flows and dawn approaches, the young couple are drawn into George and Martha’s toxic games until the evening reaches its climax in a moment of devastating truth-telling.

Imelda Staunton returns to the West End stage following her Olivier Award-winning performance as Mama Rose in Gypsy, she has been nominated for eleven Oliviers, winning four. Conleth Hill is currently best known for his role as Lord Varys in HBO’s Game Of Thrones.

Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf? will be directed by James Macdonald who recently directed Caryl Churchill’s Escaped Alone at the Royal Court.

Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf will play at the Harold Pinter Theatre from 22 February – 27 May 2017.
