A dark comedy masterpiece of American theater, winner of three Tony Awards (including Best Play of 1963) and a landmark film with Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, playwright Edward Albee's smash drama is set on the campus of a small New England college.

George, an Associate Professor of History and his wife Martha, daughter of the College's president, invite a new professor and his wife home for a nightcap. As the cocktails flow, the young couple find themselves caught in the crossfire of a savage marital war where the combatants attack the self deceptions they forged for their own survival.

"...while "Virginia Woolf" may be the most vicious portrait of a marriage this side of Strindberg, it is also—deeply and truly—a love story."Ben Brantley, NY Times
