A NATIONAL Theatre Live broadcast of the iconic ‘Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf’ is to be shown at Cardigan’s Theatr Mwldan.
In what is being described as the highest-energy and funniest version of this American classic, Imelda Staunton (Gypsy, Vera Drake, the Harry Potter films), Conleth Hill (Game Of Thrones, The Producers), Luke Treadaway (A Street Cat Named Bob, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, The Hollow Crown) and Imogen Poots (A Long Way Down, Jane Eyre) are all outstanding in James Macdonald’s critically acclaimed, five-star production of Edward Albee’s landmark play.
It will be broadcast live in HD via satellite at Theatr Mwldan, on Thursday, May 18 from the Harold Pinter Theatre, London, at 7pm.
The Guardian describes Imelda Staunton as ‘at her magnificent best’ while The Daily Telegraph says the show is ‘flawless – a superlative production’.
The play is set in the early hours of the morning on the campus of an American college, as Martha, much to her husband George’s displeasure, has invited the new professor and his wife to their home for some after-party drinks.
As the alcohol flows and dawn approaches, the young couple are drawn into George and Martha’s toxic games until the evening reaches its climax in a moment of devastating truth-telling.
Tickets are £12.50 (£11.50) for the 12A rated performance and are available from Theatr Mwldan box office.
