The wickedly funny Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? opens May 17 at Transy

LEXINGTON, Ky.—Transylvania Theater presents Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? by Edward Albee May 17-19 at 7:30 p.m. and May 20 at 2 p.m. Albee’s masterpiece won the 1963 Tony Award for Best Play and the 1962-63 New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award for Best Play. The production is for mature audiences.

Transylvania senior drama majors Molly Eakins, Trent Fucci, Theresa Marie McKenzie and Nathan Terrell Veazey star in this powerful drama-laced comedy. Characters George and Martha are a middle-aged couple whose marriage has declined into a cynical, sarcastic battlefield. They have a younger couple, Nick and Honey, over to their home, but continue their verbal and sometimes physical assaults in front of them. Nick and Honey are eventually pulled into the fight themselves, used as pawns by George and Martha.

All performances are in the Lucille C. Little Theater. Tickets are $10 and may be purchased starting Monday, May 14, from 1-4 p.m. at the Little Theater box office or by calling (859) 281-3621.
