Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf  will be performed at Cotuit Center for the Arts  from Tuesday September 20th to Sunday October 9th 2016. am_stage-_whos_afraid_of_viginia
This infamous play examines the breakdown of the marriage of a middle-aged couple, Martha and George. Late one evening, after a university faculty party, they receive an unwitting younger couple, Nick and Honey, as guests and draw them into their bitter and frustrated relationship. Set in three acts with two 10-minute intermissions, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? won a Tony Award and a New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award, both for Best Play. The dialogue in the first act has been hailed by some critics as some of the greatest in all of American theatre.
