“You don’t see anything, do you? You see everything but the goddamn mind; you see all the little specs and crap, but you don’t see what goes on, do you?”
OTP continues its tradition of re-mounting American classics for our time, as Michael Socrates Moran directs Edward Albee’s Tony Award-winning drama, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?
Following a faculty party at a New England college, George and Martha (played by OTP Associate Artistic Director Lisa Ramirez: The Crucible, The Waste Land, A Streetcar Named Desire) host younger couple Nick and Honey for late-night drinks and games—but the games aren’t limited to simple party fare, and the purpose that soon begins to emerge is something deeper, and more dangerous.
Written in 1962, Albee’s masterpiece continues to resonate with its exploration of truth, illusion, and of protecting one’s own version of reality—no matter the cost.
