Following the enormous critical success of James Macdonald’s new production of Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? starring Imelda Staunton, Conleth Hill, Imogen Poots and Luke Treadaway, the producers have today announced that the play will be broadcast live to cinemas throughout the UK and beyond as part of National Theatre Live.
The broadcast will take place on Thursday 18th May, 2017 at 7.30pm and tickets go on sale at the beginning of April.
In the early hours of the morning on the campus of an American college, Martha, much to her husband George’s displeasure, has invited the new professor Nick and his wife Honey 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.
Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? runs at the Harold Pinter Theatre until 27th May, 2017.
