WHO'S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF
“Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” is an award winning play by Edward Albee.
Married couple George and Martha know just how to push each other's buttons. Tiring of attacking each other, George and Martha invite newcomers to join in the invective. After an evening of sadistic "fun and games," a hidden truth about George and Martha's marriage soon comes to light, bringing the play to its cathartic ending.
Martha - a woman in her 40s of huge energy and drive, She is “ shrewish, slovenly, blasphemous, frustrated, slightly wacky, and alcoholic.”
