This winter, Ford’s Theatre presents Edward Albee’s classic Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf.  Aaron Posner directs and local DC favorite Holly Twyford stars as Martha in the masterpiece that The New York Times asserts “set a brave new standard for truth-telling.”

Description: The plot of Albee’s play is famous, thanks to the Hollywood film version with Liz Taylor and Richard Burton: George and Martha invite Nick and Honey to their home after a faculty party. What awaits their late-night guests is not a welcoming nightcap but tempestuous verbal sparring fueled by alcohol and 20 years of marital dysfunction. Filled with acerbic wit, Albee’s play is both wildly funny and heart-wrenching, exposing the fears and secrets of both couples as the lines between reality and illusion blur.
