It has been announced that Downton Abbey’s Elizabeth McGovern will star in the upcoming revival of Edward Albee’s popular play, which will be directed by Lindsay Posner and play at the Theatre Royal Bath from the 13th January 2023.

During the course of one brutal and hilarious night, George, a college professor, and his wife Martha invite a young couple back for late-night drinks after a faculty party. As the alcohol flows, the guests are coerced into witnessing and participating in George and Martha’s sadistic game-playing and vitriolic verbal scrapping which reaches its climax in a momentous revelation.

The play was first seen on Broadway  in 1962, Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf? is considered to be one of the great plays in post-war American drama, winner of the Tony and Critics’ Circle Awards for Best New Play. It was then transformed into a 1966 film directed by Mike Nichols and starring Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton.
