Edward Albee's Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?
Pulse Theatre Chicago presents Edward Albee's Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?  

City Lit Theater | 1020 W Bryn Mawr Ave

First produced on Broadway in 1962 and Translated to an Oscar award winning film starting real-life couple Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, Whos Afraid of Virginia Woolf? concerns a middle-aged married couple in a college town -- George , an associate professor of history, and Martha, the daughter of the college's president -- who invites the younger couple to their home very late one evening. The guests --Nick, a biology teacher at the college, and his wife Honey  -- walk into a quagmire of drinking, fights, sex, games, and delusions that each couple is faced with the truths of their relationships.

Directed by Chris Jackson

Winner of the 1963 Tony Awards for Best Play and the 196263 New York Drama Critics' Circle Award for Best Play.
