Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? back to product details

I'm afraid of Elizabeth Taylor

The jist of the play is as such: George and Martha are everybodys. A married couple whose innocent bickering turns spiteful and damaging as a young couple new to the University that George is employed at (and of who's Martha's father is the dean of) come by to play "get to know the neighbors" late after a party. As the play deepens, George and Martha's viscious game of entertaining themselves at their naive and younger guests progresses, and their madness is exposed. And when it is, its less of a surprise and closer to the heart of every person.
While easily one of the best plays ever written, Elizabeth Taylor and ensemble do it a huge injustice. She is simply not capable of suspending her desire to come across as beautiful to play this part that requires vulnerability and a deep range of emotions.
