“One of the greatest feats of acting I have witnessed.” — Paul Taylor, Independent

“Most wickedly entertaining, most viciously nasty, most incrementally harrowing…central to the shut-up-and-listen, sit-up-and-watch power of the piece is Imelda Staunton.” — Dominic Cavendish, Telegraph

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 and his wife to their home for some after-party drinks. As the alcohol flows and dawn approaches, the young couple is drawn into George and Martha’s toxic games until the evening reaches its climax in a moment of devastating truth-telling. Imelda Staunton (VERA DRAKE), Conleth Hill (GAME OF THRONES, THE PRODUCERS), Luke Treadaway (THE HOLLOW CROWN), and Imogen Poots (JANE EYRE) star in this new production of Albee’s landmark play.
