Casting all roles. Directed by Artistic Director Andy Berkovsky

Winner of the Tony Award for Best Play, Edward Albee’s masterwork has been
shocking audiences since it premiered on Broadway in 1962. Set on the
campus of an East coast college, this intense dark comedy shines a blinding
light on one, truth-exposing - booze and bantered - night in the lives of two
couples: Nick, a young biology teacher, and his rather plain wife, Honey; and the
older George, a failed history professor, and his bawdy, invective wife, Martha. It
is an evening fueled by alcohol, debauchery, and disdain, as taunts become
jabs, and jabs become attacks, building the night to a hideous, cruel frenzy, and
forcing everyone to face their most deep-seated illusions and self-deceptions.
Presented by The City Theatre Company at Trinity Street Playhouse.
