Are you afraid of the next Stammtisch? ;-)

Post date: 07-Jul-2014 17:50:10

Our regular Stammtisch this month will be on Wednesday 16th July at the Westside Theatre.

The start time is 19:00, a little later than usual as there is video shoot at the theatre beforehand so we suggest that you eat before you come.

We will be reading Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? by Edward Albee. Here are a few words about the play:

Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? is a 1962 play by Edward Albee. It examines the breakdown of the marriage of a middle-aged couple, Martha and George. Late one evening after a university faculty party, they receive an unwitting younger couple, Nick and Honey as guests, and draw them into their bitter and frustrated relationship. The play is in three acts, normally taking a little less than three hours to perform, with two 10-minute intermissions. The title is a pun on the song "Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf?" from Walt Disney's Three Little Pigs (1933), substituting the name of the celebrated English author Virginia Woolf. Martha and George repeatedly sing this version of the song throughout the play.

As usual, the Stammtisch is open also to non-members.
