The National Theatre of London continues its season with its acclaimed production of “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” showing in Sedona on Monday, June 5, at 3 p.m. The Sedona International Film Festival hosts the big screen premiere at its Mary D. Fisher Theatre.
Sonia Friedman Productions present Imelda Staunton, Conleth Hill, Luke Treadaway and Imogen Poots in James Macdonald’s critically acclaimed, five-star production of Edward Albee’s landmark play, “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” broadcast live to cinemas from the Harold Pinter Theatre in London.
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 are drawn into George and Martha’s toxic games until the evening reaches its climax in a moment of devastating truth-telling.
