The multi award-winning show is set during a brutal and hilarious night when George and his wife Martha invite a young couple back for drinks after a party.

As alcohol flows, the couple witness and participate in George and Martha’s game-playing and vitriolic verbal scrapping which reaches its climax in a momentous revelation.

The show stars Tim Pigott-Smith, who acted in the film V For Vendetta, and Olivier award-winning actress Clare Higgins.

The show, written by Edward Albee, was first performed on Broadway in 1962 and was later turned into a film starring Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton.

Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf? will be performed at the Theatre Royal Bath until July 5.

Tickets, priced £17.50-33.50, are available from the box office on 01225 448844 or online at www.theatreroyal.org.uk
