‘Oh you’re amused!’
Ruth Darcy, Darragh O’Brien, Conor Quinlan and Muireann Ni Raghallaigh in Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf

 

What starts as simple bickering grows into something altogether more sinister as all-American newlyweds Nick and Honey are pulled into the bitter battles of George- a history professor- and Martha- his wife- in a night of drinking, debauchery and violence. As drinks flow and insults fly, the couples’ games grow ever more twisted.

The border between truth and fantasy blurs, and what seems pretend becomes terrifyingly real.
