Theater Thursday: Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf

One of the most bizarre plays, to me, is Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf by Edward Albee. A dinner party hosted by middle aged couple George and Martha takes an interesting turn with “fun and games”. Their guests Nick and Honey are taken off guard by some of the outbursts the two have. However, as the night goes on each other reveals secrets to one another that threatens the breakdown of each of their marriages. Nick and Honey, along with George and Martha, end up in a struggle between fact and fiction as no one can tell who is telling the truth until the very end.
