DEVASTATING truth-telling rubs shoulders with toxic mind games in Wilmslow Green Room Theatre’s curtain-raiser for the new season.

The company is staging Edward Albee’s Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, which was made famous on screen by acting legends Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton.

The play is being staged at the Chapel Lane theatre from Saturday, October 12 to Saturday, October 19, and is directed by Mark Jephcott.

Mark said: “It’s the early hours of the morning on the campus of an American college.

“Martha (Lise Nivern Banks), much to her husband George’s (John Keen) displeasure, has invited new professor Nick (Karl Greenwood) and his wife Honey (Morgan Wild) to their home for some after-party drinks.

“But as the alcohol flows and dawn approaches, the young couple are drawn into George and Martha’s toxic mind games until the evening reaches its climax in a moment of devastating truth-telling.

“The Green Room is pleased to open its 2019-2020 season with this well-known and seldom staged production of Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?

“This modern classic drama was first performed on the stage in 1962 and later produced as a famous film starring Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton in 1966.”

All performances start at 7.30pm, and tickets are available from the Green Room box office, call 01625 540933 or book online via the theatre website,
