<I>Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?</I>

It's not often that a theater company wraps its season around one theme but this summer, Actors Theatre KC tackled the subject of marriage. As KCUR's Steve Walker reports, no one's debating that the theater's third take on marriage will be its most lacerating. By Steve Walker


Kansas City, Missouri – Actors Theatre KC presents Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? by Edward Albee. The play runs from September 21st until October 21st.

From the Actors Theatre KC website: "The quintessential play about the tug-of-war of the spouses. Both wretchedly revealing and realistically hilarious, this play is also satisfyingly smart and brilliantly written. This will be the first professional KC production of Albee's masterpiece since 1976. Actors Theatre is elated to present this stunning classic of betrayal and trust; unbridled displays of hate and fragile moments of deepest love as we look into the lives and marriage of Martha and George."

Evening performances of Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? 7:30PM: September 29th; September 30th; October 3rd -6th; October 10th-14th; October 17th-21st.
Matinee performances 2PM: September 30th; October 3rd; October 7th; October 10th; October 14th; October 21st.
