“Whom I will not forgive…for having seen me and having said: ‘Yes, this will do’. Who has made the hideous, the hurting, the insulting mistake of loving… me, and must be punished for it.”
In just under three weeks, Red Stitch Actor’s Theatre welcomes the award-winning Sarah Goodes who directs Edward Albee’s timeless classic, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf, rounding out a powerful annual season of work.
Opening on Saturday 18 November, the play features Kat Stewart in an all-ensemble cast, including David Whiteley, Emily Goddard and Harvey Zielinski.
When it burst onto the stage in 1962, it tapped into a growing unease about notions of decency and respectability, in a vicious dissection of a marriage over years of disappointments. Yet Albee’s characters also tell a love story: a story of shared acceptance of an inescapable fate.
In this dark comedy, real-life married couple, Kat Stewart and David Whiteley, will portray Martha and George, whose romance is served up to their unwitting guests, played by Emily Goddard and Harvey Zielinski, as a taste of the humiliations and the inevitable compromises to come. This masterful play is an ode to the heartbreak of middle age.
Book your tickets to witness Albee’s classic slugfest for yourself, with a stellar cast guaranteed to entertain in a searing night of fun and games.
