Who’s afraid?

Edward Albee’s classic play about alcohol-soaked intellectuals battling it out after midnight should be a must-see for theatre fans and UVic professors. And I’m not saying that just because I made the poster. So go help Victoria’s art scene and souse yourself in quality drama at the same time.

    Nice poster, Rob!

    We rented the movie (with Taylor & Burton) recently, and now both my usual theater partners are saying they don’t want to go see the play because the characters are so disgusting/ unattractive.

    I actually met an American couple a long time ago in Munich, Germany who were just as bitchy/obnoxious as George & Martha. I couldn’t believe people like that really existed, and were married – to each other!!! They were the parents of an American friend living in Munich, and since she didn’t have room to house them, we put them up in our commune. Gawd, I was so glad when they left!

    But I want to see the play even though the movie showed the characters’ flaws so mordantly precisely because I want to see what Graham has done with the material. Also, to see Clayton in the role of George!

    Clayton is different enough from Sir Richard to make one see WAVW with a new eye (I hope). I saw it on TV last week–Elizabeth Taylor was something back then.
