Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? by Edward Albee is a dark comedy that portrays husband and wife George and Martha in a searing night of dangerous fun and games. By the evening's end, a stunning, almost unbearable revelation provides a climax that has shocked audiences for years.
James Walsh (from Leonardo, NJ) has appeared in 7 Fearless Productions shows and directed 5 other Fearless Productions shows. “This production has been a process of discovery for both myself as the Director and for the actors, every step of the way. I am very lucky to work with, not only fearless actors, but hard working and intelligent ones! These qualities are essential in staging a play if this caliber. I believe Edward Albee has brilliantly captured the beautifully flawed and raw human emotions that exist between couples in his iconic play Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? and I am honored to be directing this production.”
Lynn Langone (from Cranford, NJ) stars as Martha in her 2nd show with Fearless Productions. Lynn was nominated for a Best Actress Perry and has also directed a one act in the Kicking and swearing festival. “I am thrilled to have the opportunity to take on the iconic role of Martha! She challenges me to the core of my being with her richly layered character. I also have the unique opportunity to perform opposite of my boyfriend Ted Wrigley. While some have questioned our sanity to take on the roles of such a dysfunctional couple, we have actually found the experience to be rewarding and so far we are still together. Actually we love discussing all the eccentricities of the characters and discovering their personal stories. All the pushing, shoving, spitting and hair pulling keep us on our toes. We hope you can come watch us play.”
Ted Wrigley (from Cranford, NJ) stars as George in his 2nd show with Fearless Productions. Ted had this to say about the show: "Albee's play challenges the actor to look within him or herself layer by layer, unfolding new discoveries of the character."
Shiva Kiani (from Newark, NJ) stars as Honey in her 8th show with Fearless Productions. Shiva will be Directing the Fearless Productions presentation of MAURITIUS by Theresa Rebeck which runs August 12-21, 2016. Shiva had this to say about the show: "Albee captures the function and dysfunction of marriage--how people can simultaneously support one another and break each other down, love someone above all others and hate them to the point of strangulation, play their games and yet break their rules in a real and dynamic way. I have never seen a stage relationship more true, even amidst the illusions the characters create to keep themselves alive. I'm thankful to be associated with a great piece of theater and even greater people."
Mike Burdick (from Linden, NJ) stars as Nick in his 16th show with Fearless Productions. Mike had this to say about the show: "Virginia Woolf is such an iconic play that it often gets attempted in community theater. But, by my estimation, rarely does it get produced with such a high caliber of actor and director. You do not want to miss this."
