Spousal sparring takes center stage in Edward Albee’s Tony Award-winning play Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? When a middle-aged college professor and his aggressive wife invite a young couple to their home for a nightcap, alcohol fuels episodes of verbal vitriol and underlying violence. Staged by Vermont Actor’s Repertory Theatre, this stark examination of societal standards reveals the contentious couple’s emotional dependence on one another. As the New York Times writes, “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.”

Price: $20.
