Are you afraid of Virginia Woolf? Citadel Theatre has two reasons you shouldn’t be! The first production the theatre put on was Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? — so for their 50th anniversary, they’ve chosen to revisit the classic. Between February 4 and 6, alongside Edward Albee’s Pulitzer Prize–winning drama in the Shoctor Theatre, you can catch an improvised version of the play performed in The Club. Stay for a nightcap at the theatre and don’t miss either of these brilliant performances!
We’re Not Afraid | February 4 – 6
In this improvised homage to Edward Albee’s masterpiece Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, Edmonton’s longest-running improv company Rapid Fire Theatre uses the same structure and relationships as the original, but adds in absurdity and spontaneity. The show will be different every night, but you’re guaranteed a hilarious amount of booze, delusion, and misery.
Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? | Through February 13
Edward Albee’s scorching classic about a bitter married couple and the young couple they draw into their frustrated relationship was the first production ever taken on by Citadel Theatre. For its 50th anniversary, the theatre revisits this American tale with prominent Canadian actors, including Brenda Robins and Tom Rooney.
