Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?

Written by Edward Albee

Directed by Robert Buckingham


Edward Albee’s Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf is a play first staged in October 1962. It examines the complexities of the marriage of the middle-aged couple Martha and George. Late one evening, after a university faculty party, they receive an unwitting younger newlywed couple Nick and Honey as guests and draw them into their bitter and frustrated relationship. Martha and Geroge are a malevolent codependent couple on the brink of self-discovery who have spent their entire marriage masking their pain and sorrow behind seething anger, and mind games in a constant power struggle. Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf is funny, uncomfortable, and moving, often at the same time.

The three-act play normally takes just under three hours to perform, with two 10-minute intermissions. The title is a pun on the song “Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf?” from Walt Disney’s Three Little Pigs (1933), substituting the name of the celebrated English author Virginia Woolf. Martha and George repeatedly sing this version of the song throughout the play.

Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? won both the 1963 Tony Award for Best Play and the 1962–1963 New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award for Best Play. It is frequently revived on the modern stage. The film adaptation was released in 1966, written by Ernest Lehman, directed by Mike Nichols, and starring Richard BurtonElizabeth TaylorGeorge Segal, and Sandy Dennis. The Tillamook Association for the Performing Arts is honored to present this celebrated piece.
