A biting dark comedy and gut-wrenching psychological portrait of the breakdown of a marriage, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? has been a mainstay of American theater since winning the 1963 Tony Award for Best Play. Later immortalized in a film adaptation starring Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, the play was written by the acclaimed Pulitzer Prize winner Edward Albee. The story follows George and Martha, middle-aged spouses who invite a younger husband and wife over for drinks and, over the course of the evening, use their guests as pawns in increasingly cruel mind games, leading to a devastating revelation. Razor-sharp dialogue and incisive character portraits abound in this powerful and funny Intrepid Theatre Company production of Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? at the Horton Grand Theatre in San Diego.
